Pretty much all alarm clocks, no matter how clever they are, look cold and impersonal. There are very few models out there that don't have the same plastic casing and harsh LED lights. I don't need my alarm clock to fly away or slap me in the face, but if it would look a bit warmer and classier that would be just great.
Check out this fabric alarm clock. Here's a very basic alarm clock that manages to stand out from the crowd just by looking, well, nice. The product comes with 3 different fabric swatches, but they encourage you to get creative and use any pattern or fabric you want. Finally, you have a good use for that ugly shirt your Grandma got you for Christmas.
