Gizmodo : Jigsaw Puzzle Alarm Clock via Gizmodo
I've tried everything to force me to get up in the morning. I've tried setting the alarm clock ahead, putting it across the room, hiding it, you name it. The above is an interesting idea, in that it tries to force you to solve a puzzle to turn it off. But let me tell you, I doubt you've seen a smarter person in the world than me when I'm half asleep trying to turn the alarm off. I have a level of focus and dexterity two seconds after I wake up that rivals anyone in the world at that moment. No matter how complicated it was, if it involved defusing a multi-trigger bomb while flying upside down in a monkey navigated rocket propelled hover sled I'd be able to do it if it meant getting those sweet sweet five more minutes of sleep. This thing just will not cut it.
