Gun O'Clock lets you give your alarm a violent death

Looking to put a little excitement into your morning routine? Rather than simply slapping your alarm clock to turn it off, do you want to up the stakes a little bit? Say hello to this crazy new alarm clock from Bandai in Japan.

The "Gun O'Clock" comes with an infrared gun. When the alarm goes off, a target will pop up from the top. In order to turn the shrill, beeping alarm off (which is coupled with a voice saying "Come on!"), you need to hit the bullseye. It's the perfect excuse to start sleeping with a gun under your pillow that has no chance of accidentally killing you in your sleep. It'll be available in Japan starting at the end of October for $34.
