Waking up is just that tough, that designers are racking their brains to figure out a way to get us out of bed. First, there was Clocky, the alarm clock that rolls away. Now there's the Alarm Rug. Sadly, it's still a concept piece.
This little rug sits unobtrusively by your bed, and when its time to get up the fun begins. It's alarm won't shutup until you've placed both feet firmly upon it. We're already thinking of ways to trick it into thinking we're already awake. What's to stop you from reaching out of bed and using your hands? Does it have a feet sensor?
Regardless, it wins points with us for trying, and if you'd rather not have a clock sitting by your bed this offers a pretty discreet alarm solution.
