Never oversleep again (or die)

The "Sonic Bomb" alarm will wake you but may also give you a heart attack

Those of us at Crave enjoy our sleep. So much so that it may show in some of our postings from time to time. It behooves us, then, to have an effective alarm clock so we can do right by you.

We've had our fair share of industrial-strength alarms (with dubious success), but Mr. Sandman may have met his match with the "Sonic Bomb." This master blaster drops a sound bomb at 113 decibels, which Gadgetizer says is "the same thing as a loud car horn" nearby. And if that's not enough, you can use the 12-volt bed shaker.

On second thought, all this might give us a coronary. But we'd still take that chance over a flying alarm clock, which would surely drive us insane.
