There may be a lucky few who never have trouble getting up in the morning, but for everyone else, engineer and designer Paul Sammut has a new solution. Now fully funded on Kickstarter, Sammutâ€™s new Ramos alarm clock canâ€™t be turned off by any ordinary means; rather, users must get up and walk to an accompanying defuse panel to punch in the clockâ€™s preset deactivation code.
Thereâ€™s no â€śsnoozeâ€ť button in easy reach on the Ramos clock, which has been in development for years, Sammut says. â€śRamos is a clock I made after I got tired of constantly oversleeping,â€ť he explains. â€śI needed something that would force me out of bed.â€ť No surprise, then, that the Ramos can only be turned off when the user gets up and enters in a code on a separate wireless defuse panel, which Sammut suggests be placed in the kitchen or bathroom. â€śYouâ€™ll have to use your brain a bit more, which will help wake you up,â€ť he notes. â€śBest of all, after you turn off the alarm youâ€™ll find yourself in your bathroom or kitchen, away from the evil alluring bed and ready to start your day.â€ť An optional snooze mode will be included, but users wonâ€™t be able to exceed the number of â€śsnoozesâ€ť they preset in advance.
The Ramos can now be preordered on Kickstarter starting at USD 160, with options including either an LED or nixie tube display and a variety of hardwoods and finishes. Specialty retailers around the globe: one to get in on early?
