Ever have trouble getting out of bed in the morning? With back to school season in full swing, it’s a common issue. When you have to be at school by 7:45 or 8:00 a.m., waking up is hard to do. What’s more, something called “delayed sleep phase syndrome,” which tends to affect teens, can make your internal body clock think it’s still time to be asleep about the time you have to wake up. 

But there’s no need to stress over making it to the bus on time this year — not when there’s The Clocky. Sure, it looks like a plain old alarm clock, but this one has a special feature: wheels. Like a regular alarm clock, it beeps at the time you set it. But instead of letting you mash the snooze button like 40% of people do every morning, the clocky rolls away from your bedside, forcing you out of bed and after the clock to turn it off.

Knowing that some people sleep right through alarms, while others don’t need an alarm at all, are you ready to chase down your alarm clock every morning? Do you think The Clocky is the next big thing? Share your opinion in our poll.
