four years ago, designer guari nanda answered the call of over-sleepers everywhere with clocky, the two-wheeled alarm clock that runs away from you to get you out of bed.
In the last few years she’s made some improvements, and released Tocky at the recent New York International Gift Fair. Tocky doesn’t run away as much as it rolls. It’s completely spherical with three little rubber legs to stabilize it on your nightstand. It also has changeable skins, a touchscreen and the ability to record messages and mp3 so you can wake up to your favorite song or a prerecorded reminder that you have a 9am meeting. Of course, piece of mind comes with a price tag. You can get your very own Tocky at Nanda’s site for $79.
