The whole “shoot to silence” alarm clock idea has been done to death. But Hasbro has managed to eek out one more worthy of mention with its new Nerf-branded Shoot To Snooze alarm clock which requires groggy users to nail it with a foam dart or disk in order to silence its morning wails.
Besides providing a target to take out your frustrations at having to drag yourself out of bed in the morning, the Shoot To Snooze is a fairly rudimentary alarm clock. It’s got a crude segmented LCD display with a backlight that can be activated by tapping anywhere on the clock, a mandatory snooze function, and just a single melody alarm. It does have a thermometer, though, but it’s only going to tell you how warm or cold it is in your temperature-controlled bedroom, so it’s kind of useless.
The alarm will set you back about $24 when it’s finally available in September, but that doesn’t include any Nerf firearms so you’ll need to factor that into the cost if you’re not already packing a small arsenal.
