Sleep, perchance to sleep some more, right? We've all gotten pretty good at beating the alarm clock (literally and figuratively). Hit the snooze, shove it under the bed, done. Well, looks like we've met our match. When Gauri Nanda was a grad student at MIT, she designed a clever alarm clock that sidestepped the whole snooze button loophole. The result: Clocky, the alarm clock on wheels ($47, available in various colors). Every time you hit the snooze button, cute little Clocky will roll out of arm's reach and unleash a torrent of R2-D2 beeps. (See for yourself.) Just don't get mad at Clocky if you stub your toe trying to chase it down at five in the morning. You don't want to make Clocky sad.
