Fragile This is a cool concept, and when it actually did what it’s supposed to do (before it broke), it did a great job of getting me out of bed in the morning. The problem is that the area in which you’re supposed to place the propeller is too fragile. If you don’t press down, the alarm doesn’t shut off, and if you press too hard (too hard being moderate pressure; I do not have concrete hands), the parts that spin the propeller break.
Design flaws make this alarm clock less effective than it could be. Have trouble getting up in the morning? Then the Flying Alarm Clock may just be the product for you. For me, however, it was not. The clock works simply enough: the base has a motor that spins the top part at a designated time, causing the top to fly up for a few seconds. When positioned on my nightstand, it would always fly up and land on my wife’s face (not good). When I tried putting it on the carpet on the opposite side of the room, I learned that the speaker is on the bottom of the base, and placing it on the carpet makes the alarm inaudible (very not good). The base is elevated, so there is no problem hearing the alarm when it is set on a hard, flat surface.
Terrifying and Absolutely Perfect My boyfriend is a heavy sleeper. I’m sure he could sleep through a skeet shooting exhibition that was being held at the foot of his bed during a Category 5 hurricane that was shredding his house to bits while it was on fire.This year for Christmas, I purchased him the Flying Alarm Clock and once he set his alarm, he has not been late since. The sound emitted from the speaker on the bottom side of the unit emits an incredibly loud siren once the alarm goes off…that’s bad enough to wake the dead. On top of that, the sound of the spinning blade jolts him awake immediately in fear of his life ending. Even if the spinning wheel of hatred atop the unit does not wake him immediately, it plants itself behind his computer desk in his bedroom for impossible retrieval without extensive physical exertion.The alarm is splendid. I’m sure my boyfriend will never be late again, but I might have an extra load of underwear laundry to do one morning in the very near future…
