I just bought a sunrise stimulating alarm clock for $115 ...ouch
it better work or else its getting returned! I'm a sucker for new gadgets and i hate waking up from dead sleep to a beeping noise, so i thought i should give this a try.
its a biobrite sunrise alarm clock
* Gradual sunrise wakes you gently and naturally
* Gradual sunset enables your body to wind down and promotes sleep
* Optional backup audible alarm
* Dimmable bedside lamp for reading or soft lighting
* Optional white noise to mask outside noise or partner's snoring promoting sleep
i'll let you all know if it works, some people say it creates the best waking experience they've ever experienced. im excited, i feel like a kid on christmas day

That's a pretty neat idea.
I use my cell phone for an alarm clock ... I'm thinking of putting a Rooster sound byte on there to wake me up

I don't have one of those clocks but I did fork out some dough for full spectrum lightbulbs. I put them in our bathroom vanity so when you get up and turn them on, it's like noon day bright and you wake up faster. It really does seem to help.

Alarm clock = me pissed off every morning. The sound drives me MAD. If this works out I'm getting one, too, lol.
08-22-2007, 02:42 PM
this works, i think $115 is cheap for a lifetime of waking happiness
08-22-2007, 02:43 PM
I get to hear my wife's alarm clock..2-10 times, then her cell phone goes off as her back up.
So yeah, I understand the waking up angry thing. lol
08-22-2007, 02:45 PM
kwyck is the most angry morning waker ever. seriously, he wakes up hitting the wall and fuming. lol im bad about mornings but a groggy, snooze 10 million times bad
08-22-2007, 02:46 PM
I don't hit the walls But I am fuming...I hate it when people talk to me before I've eaten or spent at least 30 mins in the car listening to the radio, then I'm the most mellow guy ever
08-22-2007, 02:47 PM
If we could all wake up like my baby girl..life would be grand.
I say her name a few times and she unsnuggles from the covers, looks up at me, smiles and starts kicking and laughing.
Oh to be 8 months old again, lol.

Is it just a regular incandescent light bulb or is it a full-spectrum one? I'll admit that I bought a "full-spectrum" (or some blue only version that was advertised to be better than full-spectrum) a few years ago to help me wake up.
I like that idea of putting it in the bathroom because I fell out of the habit of using it in the morning due to me always being late, lol. I always took that extra 15min for sleep instead of looking at light.
If yours is just a regular type of light (although it sounds like it dims/brightens automatically over time instead of an instant on/off), there might be a cheaper, less cool way of doing it:
There are timers that you can plug lights into. My ex had one in the living room to light up at night so it looked like ppl were home even if we weren't. I imagine you could use one of those in your bedroom too - just that the light would be instant and most annoying, lol.
I don't hit walls and stuff when I wake up...I just sometimes bump into them. But it's not out of anger, but more out of a lack of awareness of where my body is, lol.

On a side note on the quest for a better sleep / wakeup experience, I'm on my 2nd box of MHP's Secretagogue-One.
Yeah, I know, everybody and their dog on here says how natural GH enhancers don't work and are a waste of money. The only thing they ever got from them is a better sleep........hmmmm....... a better sleep is what I've been looking for.
PowerFull helps put me to sleep and I think gives me a deeper sleep. But I think Secretagogue-One has been helping me wake-up earlier. Still too early to tell IMO, but I've experienced enough anecdotal evidence within myself to be buy a 3rd box...

You could have saved yourself $95 by buying 3 $5 plug-in timers and 3 lamps (3 for $5 at a garage sale) then setting them to come on 5 minutes apart.

Cold air blast wake-up apparatus

I've always wanted to try one of these..Now & Zen - The Zen Alarm Clock
it is supposed to be progressive and wake you gently and I like the way it looks. Although nothing will ever make me want to get up in the morning.

oh and yes, i like the idea of a progressively brightening light source instead of 3 separate lamps with 3 separate timers . i am a lazybum when it comes to electronics.
08-22-2007, 05:24 PM
i heard my new light one wakes up heavy sleepers easily i have my doubts but the clock has a progressive regular alarm built in as well, just in case you dont wake up with the light
08-22-2007, 05:30 PM
I need to invent and patent myself some sort of alarm clock flesh feeling suction device... place that strategically at night, and slowly wake up to....I'm thinking much less grumpily...lol
08-22-2007, 05:47 PM
Wouldn't work for me, I screw in my sleep. Hell, half the time when I get started with my woman in the middle of the night I don't even know who I'm next to for about 5 minutes because I'm still sleeping, lol.

I have a $4.98 alarm clock from walmart. Besides the couple of times i threw it against the wall and one of the buttons broke off, i have had it for a couple of years. wakes me up fine! I personally could never spend that much on something like that, and I would beat Chad's ass if he spent that much money on that too!

What about this?
That's right, when the alarm goes off you have to wake up and chase the frickin thing around to turn it off.
08-23-2007, 06:26 AM
i saw that clock. nifty idea, but would drive me even more insane than a regular alarm clock. if i had kids, id get that clock for them
and yeah im not used to spending so much money on useless things (unless its a dumb purse) but something like this that improves my day to day living is well worth it.

So when you say 'Beat Chad's ass' does that mean some type of hidden sexual connotation, or just a figure of speech for 'physically hurt' ?
08-23-2007, 10:33 AM
I have always wondered if these were any good. I have smashed an alarm clock in the past and now use a mobile… perhaps you should keep a log!
08-24-2007, 05:02 AM
Its totally comical though; to think of myself running around pissed off as hell as this annoying ass alarm clock runs away from me.
