One of the world's most annoying gadgets is now available in--wait for it--chrome!

You may remember that not too long ago, we told you about the Enso Clock , which wakes users with soothing Zendo-like sounds and may be the least annoying alarm clock ever.

Well, the Clocky from Nanda Home is pretty much the opposite--a clock that actually jumps off your nightstand and wheels around beeping until you get up and chase it down. The pushy little Clocky gives you one chance to drag your sleepy self out from under the comforter, then it plays hardball. This is clearly not a gadget for snooze button fans.

The Clocky Chrome, which is now shipping for $65, does have at least one thing going for it: it's a bit more subtle-looking than the Valentine's Day edition .
