Ruggie £69

It’s called Ruggie, and it’s basically a rug with an alarm built in. The only way to silence the alarm is to get up and plant your feet on it for three seconds. By then, you’re out of bed, so you may as well start your day.
It’s claimed that this lack of a snooze function will help us feel more optimistic, be more productive and get more out of life. There’s certainly something to be said for not hitting snooze five times in a row and then having to rush to get to work on time.
Ruggie gives you a little boost too. It can play customisable sounds straight after the alarm has ended, like motivational messages.
