You know it’s bad for you, but the lure of hitting the snooze button multiple times and falling back into sleep’s sweet, sweet embrace almost always reels you in like a siren song. 

If you want kiss your snooze goodbye, the world’s first talking rug alarm clock, the Ruggie, is a great rebound candidate.

Made of high-density memory foam with an internal touch sensor system, the Ruggie will only stop playing the alarm tones or nature sounds you’ve selected to wake you up after the 15.5” x 23.5” rug is stood on for three seconds.

After the alarm is disabled, the rug — which has a built-in LED display that shows the time and can be controlled via its USB port — will pepper you with motivational quotes like it’s your own customizable Mickey Goldmill.

A Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to produce the $131 (including shipping) morning mats has more than sextupled its goal and rousing rugs should start shipping worldwide in September.

Let your old alarm clock down easy champ.
