As technology marches forward, so does the intelligence of the average alarm clock. But the Voice Interactive Alarm Clock makes a leap forward, with its ability to understand 10 different spoken commands. For example, when the alarm goes off you can shout "Stop" and it will snooze for 5 minutes.
Other commands include "Set Alarm", "Set Time","Check Alarm", "what is the date","Alarm Sound", and "Temperature", which gives you the current temperature in the room. The clock is also touch sensitive, in case you are not in a vocal mood.
The clock also provides soothing sounds to sleep by, including sounds like the ocean, chirping birds, and a babbling brook.
The Voice Interactive Alarm Clock sells for $49.95, and you can find it at Hammacher Schlemmer.
