Mission: Get out of bed

Are you far from 007-quality in the morning? A short walk and a spot of code-breaking should do the trick... An inventor has created an alarm clock that could leave every single bed122292150 empty as soon as it goes off, according to recent reports. The Ramos clock will have you jumping out of bed and rushing out of the room straight into your morning routine, with just one quick stop: to the defuse panel you’ve positioned in another room of your house. Unlike other alarm clocks, when you set the Ramos you have no option to snooze or even to turn it off completely and revisit the land of nod. With a long-life battery to stop it going off if unplugged, this invention requires you to go to a panel and enter a code; only then will the alarm stop. The idea is that by the time you have forced yourself into a mentally alert state in order to key in the 4 digit number – which could be the day’s date or a code flashed up on the clock-  you will be out of the foggy haze that would normally see you turn over and go back to sleep. If you hang the panel in the bathroom or kitchen, the theory goes, you will get on with your morning routine, no ‘snooze’ required. New-Jersey based inventor Paul Sammut wrote on his website: “I made [the Ramos clock] after I got tired of constantly oversleeping. I needed something that would force me out of bed.”
