Shape Up fitness dumbbell alarm clock wake up

Dumbbell alarm clock

If you need a helping hand with waking up in the morning, then this quirky Shape Up alarm clock takes you one step further than an average bedside clock.

Shaped like a dumbbell, the novelty alarm clock beeps like an ordinary clock to wake you up, but you can’t get away with pressing a button to put it on snooze.

Oh no, with the Shape Up alarm clock, you’ve got to perform 30 reps with it before it shuts up and stops beeping at you!

The alarm clock isn’t too heavy, so it’s suitable for most people to use. The idea of doing 30 reps before you’ve even stepped out of bed may not be too appealing, but if you’re thinking of adding a fitness goal to your New Year’s resolutions for 2012, then this could put you on the path to get those muscles into action.

The Shape Up Alarm clock is available from various retailers, including Firebox, where it’s priced at £19.99.

iMusic wireless pillow: music to help you sleep

i-music mp3 home technology wireless pillow

Musical pillow

Has anyone tried one of these wireless iMusic pillows? I’m highly tempted to give it a go!

As someone who sometimes has to resort to sticking in headphones and listening to music to drown out certain noise at  night, it’s not always the most comfortable way of drifting off to sleep. The earplugs can be uncomfortable lying on your side, and I invariably wake up tangled up with cables.

So this iMusic pillow sounds like the perfect solution. The pillow offers all the benefits of an MP3 player, without the hassle of wires and earplugs. It works wirelessly and has an inbuilt speaker in the pillow, so that you can listen discretely and comfortably.

It can even transpit audio from a TV, so you can watch your favourite TV show in bed, with the sound coming from your pillow rather than the TV set.

It all sounds very clever. If you want to try it out too, the iMusic wireless pillow costs £29.99 from I Want One of Those.

The soothing circular rocking bed

Private Cloud rocking bed

Private Cloud rocking bed

As far as unusual beds go, this has to be one of the more unique bed designs ever produced.

The idea behind the bed is that, as children, we get used to being rocked off gently to sleep. It’s a calming and relaxing process, so why not offer a rocking bed for adults too?

The rocking bed is made from wood, which has been carefully bent to produce the wonderful rounded effect. The bed can be used in its natural state, with a gentle rocking movement, or put into a sloping position, which is great for reading in bed, sleeping or watching TV. The feet at the bottom of the construction help to keep the bed steady and stable – and if you get fed up with the rocking movement, then you can easily remove them.

The rocking bed is about to gain fame, as it’s featuring in top German TV soap, Sturm der Liebe, during the month of June. This rather nifty bed has been made by Private Cloud, and you can find out more details here.
