Dragged out of bed

This is a good idea.  The Sfera radio alarm clock hangs from the ceiling above the bed.  When it goes off in the morning, a quick tap triggers the snooze function but also causes the cord to retract, so that ten minutes later, one has to reach higher to gain a further snooze period.  It only stops when it reaches the ceiling, by which time one obviously has to get out of bed to turn it off.

Brilliant and depressing. I came up with something similar but nowhere near as simple, which makes me feel like Salieri to Mozart. Mine involved poking. It's on a nearly uncirculated blog of mine called "The Million Dollar Ideation Project" where I gather all my unbelieveably great ideas, emphasis on unbelieveably. Read it here.
