Clocky sounds like R2D2 and looks kind of like an ATV's single-axled, pastel cub. In other words, it's really, really cute. Which is why when Clocky wakes you with its piercing warbles, crashes to your floor and rolls under your bed, you won't want to smash its little display with your fist. At least, we hope not!

Clocky is a clock for people who have trouble getting out of bed. When the snooze bar is pressed, Clocky rolls off the table and finds a hiding spot, a new one every day. Clocky began as a class project. After graduating, Gauri Nanda turned Clocky into a well-crafted manufacturable design. Clocky is now available at her company, Nanda. Visit nandahome.com.(source)

Clocky is just another nifty design project I heard about today at the State of Innovation Summit. Seriously cool stuff.
