I really like the design of this alarm clock, based on the Jedi training remote Luke Skywalker used in the original Star Wars. It really does look like it. But instead of firing sparks of electricity at your lightsaber, this orb is designed to wake Jedi younglings from their slumber.
While I wish you had to slash it with a lightsaber to shut it off, they decided that you’re supposed to throw it across the room in order to shut the alarm off. I suppose that’s a good way to get your aggression out first thing in the morning, but I’d be afraid that I’d break it (or something else in its path of destruction.) It’s not like it looks like this thing is made from rubber after all.
To make your morning routine more challenging, be sure to wear a helmet with the blast shield down when you reach for it.
The Jedi Training Remote Alarm Clock should be out this April/May. I haven’t found a U.S. retailer yet, but they are available for pre-order now over at Australia’s Frontline Hobbies for $29.99 (AUS) (~$32 USD) and at UK seller ForbiddenPlanet for £19.99 (~$31 USD).
