I think this would be a great thing to not do.

Wu Shu Snooze Defender

Martial Arts figurine that defends the snooze button

5:30 am. The intolerable wail bursts forth.
I, in half dream state, finally conclude that the source of this annoyance must be the alarm clock. (Whatever the three previous things I thought it was didn't respond when I took appropriate measures in my dream)

I reach my hand toward the snooze button in a well practiced motion intending to slap the top of the offending alarm clock until I manage to silence the thing.

I forgot that today was going to be different.

I feel a smack on the side of my hand, knocking my hand away. This startles me enough for me to open my blurry eyes and look over.
There stands a dwarfed version of Bruce Lee. I reach towards the button again, this time more quickly, but my hand gets smacked away again. The figurine says something like "o-ah, oup, hoochah!"

Now I am fully awake. It takes me 4 more tries, but I finally hit the snooze. Admitting to myself that there's no sense in going through that again this morning I reach over and turn off the alarm, get up and get ready for the day.

Product comes in a variety of characters which are vice mounted to a bedside table.

The product uses several different aimed motion sensors in conjunction with a couple of programmed movements for 3 of the four figurine limbs in order to defend the snooze button of your choice.

       I'd set it to defend the 'on' button the evening before.

       for [21 Quest], The None Shall Pass Black Knight could be a higher priced limited edition option.
This one could be spring mounted to a rod that connected to the vice mounted plate. (The spring mount attaches to the back of the Black Knight)
