Design flaws make this alarm clock less effective than it could be.
on September 13, 2007
Have trouble getting up in the morning? Then the Flying Alarm Clock may just be the product for you. For me, however, it was not. The clock works simply enough: the base has a motor that spins the top part at a designated time, causing the top to fly up for a few seconds. When positioned on my nightstand, it would always fly up and land on my wife's face (not good). When I tried putting it on the carpet on the opposite side of the room, I learned that the speaker is on the bottom of the base, and placing it on the carpet makes the alarm inaudible (very not good). The base is elevated, so there is no problem hearing the alarm when it is set on a hard, flat surface.
