What about this one then? You'd have to catch it before you can smash it:

I was thinking about getting one of these, but they're much much too expensive: Image

I could smash that. I have very quick reflexes. No I admit it would last the first day... morning... but I think somehow subliminally I would go to bed with a hammer the second night.

What does the second clock do? Turn on a light?

Yes, it grows slowly lighter, like the sun going up. And you can also choose all kinds of sounds that also grow slowly louder. You can either choose all kinds of "natural sounds" or you can plug in your mp3 player and have your own music.

However, I bought a much cheaper normal radio clock. 190 Euros for an alarm clock is just too much - though I would like to try if the thing really could wake me up.

A friend of mine wanted that, back in the 1980s. She also wanted the Dusk feature the website mentions.
But she wouldn't spend that much for it, either. Neither would I, though if I won the lottery, I might.

Yes, if I won the lottery I surely would get one. But then, if I won the lottery, I would probably quit my job and wouldn't need an alarm clock anymore...

I just realized, Youtube only saves 199 likes. I didn't know that. so I went looking for somethings and found they were gone, since each new like erases the last one on the list. Grrr
