A laser beam aimed at the exact center of the target is the only way to turn off the alarm sound in the morning. When the laser hits the target the alarm is turned off for 24 hours and goes off at the same time the next day. The alarm will always do this until manually de-activated or the alarm time changes.[image via/read more at ThinkGeek]
Now this is futuristic. But I'm not. I'm a traditionalist. And my tradition with alarm clocks is they either get hit by a pillow or by my Glock. I find the Glock more amusing because the pillow just can't destroy the fucking thing, with the Glock, I surely wake up from my slumber and blast the damn thing to smithereens. I'm still getting this clock not because of the laser but for my Glock.
