    There are many of us, who have gotten so used to their alarms, that they do not even notice when they turn it off. This new alarm clock from Japanese firm Banpresto actually requires a bit of brain power to defuse/turn off. The user has to connect the red, yellow and blue cables together in the right order, otherwise the bomb "goes off" with an audible explosion. It should be available from GeekStuff4U for $38 USD and a mere $19 USD in Japan. This should make for a great gift.

    I outsmart any alarm clock, I simply turn it off or remove power without needing to wake up. I can do quite interesting things in my sleep. If they find a clock that outsmarts me I simply don't turn it on before I sleep.

    haha think of the fun. buy one of these and set it for like 3AM. stick it under your friends bed and when it wakes him/her up they will freak out when they find this thing beeping at them. lol! in their crazy half awake half asleep state they make think its for real and rush to defuse it. classic.

    And it doesn't work, I just dive back into bed and sleep on. Then again I think I'm the problem here.

    @dan,

    Your problem is that you go to bed too late because you are internetting until early hours :roll:

    Dont blame the wake-up clock... blame the "going to bed" machine! LOL
