Ramos Alarm Clock: Get out of Bed, Sleepyhead!

Alarms clocks are a dime a dozen, but this beautiful bedside clock aims to shake things up a bit. Designed and engineered by Paul Sammut, the Nixie Ramos is part of a Kickstarter project featuring two decidedly different versions of the same clock. While the LED version is interesting, the Nixie version is the one you’ll want, but in order to get it, you’ll have to pay quite a lot more. That being said, the clock is handmade.

So besides its looks, what’s different about the Ramos? In order to stop the alarm on this clock, you’ll have to enter a code into the Defuse Panel, an independent keyboard – much like that you’d find on a burglar alarm – that you can place anywhere within a certain radius. Assuming you don’t just keep it under your pillow, you’ll be forced awake because of the intellectual stimulation necessary to perform this task. It will definitely stop you from pushing the snooze button over and over again, and ending up late for work. Depending on how much you end up pledging, you’ll either get the standard model, effective within 50 feet or so, or the long range model, which works within 100 feet.

The Ramos Alarm Clock sells for $160(USD) for the plain-Jane LED model, but the highly desirable Nixie Ramos sells for $350, and you can even spend more money on custom versions. The long range version is pretty interesting, because you can put the Defuse Panel on another floor or room in your place, ensuring that you’ll wake up.

And if you have any funny ideas about unplugging the alarm clock – that won’t help either, since it’s got a battery backup unit built in. You can find out more about the Ramos Alarm Clock over on Kickstarter.
