Morning Brain Teasers

Dare to get the iQ Alarm clock only if you’re smarter than a fifth grader. The clock has no snooze button so instead, challenges you with brain teasers to shut the damn thing off! Expect to wake up to questions like “What’s your favorite Design Blog?” Why of course, Yanko Design! You can set the alarm to incessantly ring until you answer anywhere from 1-3 questions. What’s really clever is the clock has a hard-to-open battery compartment so to power it off you need to press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Like the designer puts it, “This is an alarm you will love to hate.”
