The Tangible User Interface Alarm Clock Forces You Out of Bed

Wake up on the fun side with the Tangible User Interface Alarm Clock (TUI-AC). Ok, it might not be some for fun considering its explosive intentions, but it does provide a release for whatever mood we're in when we wake up.

Designed by Huang Wei, the Tangible User Interface Alarm Clock can be thrown, pulled and generally man-handled for fun or for emotional release. Not only that, it's designed to get you out of bed right away rather than letting you hit the snooze button a dozen times. To activate the alarm, you must pull and throw it. Then, in the morning when it goes off, you have to get up to turn it off.
