As complicated as it can be, getting up in the morning has several really simple solutions, supposing you’re one not apt to be waking. One of them is TUI-AC, the Tangible User Interface Alarm Clock, a lovely little bomb that you set with a pin, turn, crank, and arm by releasing, and go ahead to sleep.

Because of how complicated it is to get up, find the bomb, find the pin, and place the pin back in the bomb to stop the noise.
