Ever tire of waking up to the incessant sound of the alarm and the unpleasant thought of another long day ahead? Instead of banging down hard on the alarm clock, some practical souls have come up with the idea of combining the alarm clock with a coffee-maker, juicer and toaster amongst others to make the thought of waking up more palatable.

Wake Up is a French product that surely puts the stomach in its rightful place – at number one – even in slumber. Set the alarm the night before. Make sure the juice and coffee/chocolate machine as well as the toaster is loaded. Click the right buttons to select your breakfast choice. Wake up to a ready-made breakfast. Nothing beats waking up to the thought (and smell) of a delicious breakfast to fill that growling stomach after a long night.
