Wake up!

I've already mentioned the ascending alarm clock, but Gizmodo links to two other effective, novel ones.
The first is somehow endearing: mounted in a furry cylinder, when one hits 'snooze, the clock rolls itself off the bedside table then goes and hides, in a different place each day.
The other sounds effective but probably annoying.  At the required time, it fires it's four-part 'off' button into the air.  One then has to find the segments and reassemble the button (it's a jigsaw) in order to stop the noise.

[Update 12/10/05: The former invention, Clocky, now has its own website, and its creator won the 2005 Ig Nobel Prize for Economics.]
