This toys with the fine line between "want" and "need", as it is adorable but also very practical. You see, when they came up with that "'not a morning person' doesn't even begin to describe it" line, they actually had me in mind.
Not. A. Morning. Person.
So I probably need something like this. Plus, I like that the thinkgeek description refers to its noises as "R2D2 on acid".
I've also seen some other neat alarm clocks, where they hover around the room or require you to put puzzle pieces back together in order to shut it off. Anything special you've seen?
