Ruggie Makes You a Better Person

Not a morning person? Don’t sweat it, many people aren’t. Most of us can agree however, that it’s always best to start the day off on the right foot.

Ruggie lets you do just that – put your best foot forward. See, Ruggie is an alarm clock that forces you to get out of bed in order to turn it off. And because it’s a rug that can be programmed to say encouraging words, you’ll most likely resist the urge to press snooze and hurl it across the room.

According to it’s Kickstarter page, snoozing indirectly lets you tell yourself it’s OK to back out of your commitments. Since you don’t press snooze with Snuggie, your mind is on board with being more productive, motivated, and ready to tackle the stuff you have to do throughout your day.

How does it work? Simple. When the alarm sounds, you have to stand on it for at least 3 seconds to actually turn it off. Once you’re up, it’s probably best just to get the day started – after all, resetting a carpet alarm is probably more work than you’d like to take on first thing in the morning.

People seem to agree; the alarm clock already has over 1000 backers on Kickstarter and is well over its goal of $36K. Check it out below:
