The Flying Alarm Clock – your low-flying wake-up call


Why do so many people wake up to breakfast radio? Because it’s so annoying, it literally drags us kicking and screaming out of our slumber. And even more annoying than the sound of Chris Moyles and Terry Wogan combined is the Flying Alarm Clock.

It’s annoying for two reasons. Firstly, it’s got an annoying tone not unlike the Star Trek red alert siren. And if that’s not bad enough, if flies around your head. Ok, the whole clock doesn’t fly, just the propeller, which hovers around the room with accompanying noise until you get up and put it back where it came from.

And if all that is a bit to annoying, you can buy it someone you’re not too keen on as a gift. Available now from Firebox, you can pick one up for £19.95.
