You won’t believe this new rug that’s an alarm clock

You won’t believe this new rug that’s an alarm clock

For anyone who isn’t a morning person, waking up in the morning can be a struggle. No matter how much you sleep you manage to get, the sound of the alarm clock is never welcomed.

Enter Ruggie – the latest (genius, interesting, plain strange?) innovation that’s set to turn night owls into cheery morning people.

The device is essentially an alarm clock built into a small rug that you keep next to your bed. When the alarm goes off in the morning, you have to physically stand on the rug for at least three seconds before it will turn off. There’s even an option to change the settings from the blaring alarm beeping to someone telling you positive affirmation. Now that’s a pretty good way to start the day! Watch the video above for a demonstration of the ruggie and tell us, would you give it a go?
