Introducing Ruggie – World’s first talking rug alarm clock.

Posted in Technology

Accroding to Ruggie, Tired of sleeping through your alarms? Do you hit the snooze button over and over again? I don’t blame ya, modern clocks make it way to easy for us to snooze… especially when we’re coming straight from magical dreamland!

This revolutionary clock will not only get you out of bed on time (you’ll literally have to get up!), it will reward you with daily motivation to keep you out of bed and start your mornings off right!

The alarm will only shut off if you rest both of your feet on its memory foam padding for a full three seconds, which means you have to physically get out of bed in order to deactivate the annoying beep. And there’s no snoozing, so simply tapping the alarm won’t work.

Additionally, once you’re out of bed and the alarm is off, the rug will play customizable speeches or funny sayings to make it worthwhile. Or maybe just encouragement to not get back into bed.

Winson Tam, creator of The Ruggie, told that like many people, he struggles with waking up in the morning.

“Too many times I’ve over-snoozed. I know how it feels, it sucks. There is so much resistance in the morning, the warm comfy bed, the cold floors, that awesome dream we just had,” he said. “I created Ruggie to help myself and others get out of bed easier and be more productive.”

The Ruggie is currently raising funding on Kickstarter, and has already surpassed its goal of $36,113 with 54 days to go. At the time of writing, Ruggie has already raised $42,000.

Backing starts at $59, but the company plans to sell the unit at retail for $99.
