    I like the idea of the water alarm clock, it's weird but interesting. It'd be annoying to have to empty it before boarding the plane though... and I'm assuming you'd have to reset the time every time you dump the water. If you didn't empty it, be prepared for a few surprised faces at security because I'm pretty sure it'd look like a bomb if it was filled with water! I guess it's something more for camping than staying in hotels... you can use the alarm clock or your cell phone at a hotel and they're not exactly energy hogs.
