This Evangelion EVA-01 Will Scare You Out Of Bed

by Adriana Lee | June 16, 2012

Hard sleepers know the horror of slowly realizing they must’ve hit the snooze button a dozen times, because that all-important meeting actually began, like, 20 minutes ago. D’oh!

Don’t let it happen to you. With the Evangelion EVA-01 Test Type The Alarm Clock, it doesn’t have to. Indeed, this is a face only a mother could love, now made a little extra creepy with a moving joint that makes the head bob. Hardcore anime fans will recognize this device as the head of EVA Unity 1 from the Neon Genesis Evangelion series, and may delight in the clock’s half minute of recorded dialogue from the series, voiced by the original actors.

Available October 29, this beast is on preorder now for a whopping $385 (plus $41 shipping). That’s a lot of money to spend on something that’ll ruin your bedroom d├ęcor, and being scared awake may not be the nicest way to start the day, but at least you can be assured this will definitely get you out of bed.
