Waking up is hard to do, so says American pop/rock singer Neil Sedaka.

Who here laze around in bed when the clock goes off? Anybody? Hands… no? Curiously enough, some of us can even sleep through the entire process! It’s never easy waking up to the annoying ‘bleep bleep’ sound; the whole thing sounds almost offensive.

Maybe it’s time to dump our old alarm checks in the rubbish bin and replace them with these genius gadgets instead.

Coffeephiles will undoubtedly see this as the epitome of perfection. This aromatic gadget is designed with storage for sugar, milk and extra grounds and stainless steel ball bearings that boil the water through induction heating.

You might want to flex your muscles before switching off this alarm clock because this quirky gadget… runs on wheels!

As shown on Amazon, it rolls off the bedside table and scoots away. Don’t worry about it being ruined from the fall (unless you have a freakishly tall nightstand) as it is able to withstand a 3-foot maximum drop height.
