Japanese alarm clock wakes up heavy sleepers with helicopter engine sound

Tokyo-based Toyo Trading [JP] is selling an alarm clock in the shape of a helicopter, which wakes up users with a tricky mechanism. Unfortunately, the device is Japan-only at this point.

At the preset time, the clock launches a rotor up in the air that keeps on flying around while making an extra-annoying engine sound (see Toyo Trading’s promo video below). The battery-powered clock can only be silenced by catching the rotor and putting it back into the clock base.

The device costs $35.
