Being woken up by an alien invasion force doesn't sound like much fun, does it? But when the invasion force in question is a bunch of original Space Invaders, it's positively geektastic!
Ladies, gentlemen and anyone else who wasted the 80s fiddling with their joysticks, introducing the Space Invaders Alarm Clock. Exclusive to Firebox and fully licensed by the pioneering boffins over at Taito, this memory-jogging timepiece utilises the groundbreaking sounds and visuals of the greatest video game in history to stir you out of boboland.
When it's time to wake up... the magic happens!
Simply set the alarm and when morning comes the retro casing of this ultra-stylish gizmo lights up in all kinds of crazy colours. But that's just for starters because a squadron of Space Invaders appears on-screen accompanied by a cacophony of familiar sound effects. You'd have to be a right dum-dum-dum-dummy not to be blown away.

Just as sinister, ominous and excruciatingly compelling as the game it honours, the Space Invaders Alarm Clock is the ideal pressie for geeks who remember the days when your status was determined by your high score. It also serves as a practical tribute to a global gaming phenomenon. It's enough to make you want to slip on your slacks and head down the arcade on your roller skates.

Set and mode buttons on the legs!
Did we mention that the backlit LCD screen also displays the time and date? Well it does, but who cares about the time, getting to work and all that dull malarkey when you're face to face with the appendage-waggling blighters that spawned a thousand playground impersonations.
We think this stunning gadget is gonna fly off the shelves faster than you can say 'Mum, can I have another ten pee?' So hurry up and use your firing finger to hit the Buy button. Game and lie-in over!
