Oregon Scientific RM313PA Exactset Fixed Projection Alarm Clock
This clock from Oregon Scientific is the one you'll be setting every other clock in the house by. That's because it automatically sets itself based on the U.S. atomic clock, ensuring it's always correct. It will even set itself for Daylight Savings. The other, even cooler feature here is that it can project the exact time on any surface you choose, utilizing bright red LED's. They're bright enough to cast a strong projection, but never intrusive enough to interrupt the solace of a darkened bedroom. When the alarm goes off, it will crescendo from a low sound to much louder in a short period of time. Hit the snooze and you get an eight minute reprieve before it starts back up again. The clock can run on AC power and takes 2 AA batteries for backup in case the power goes out. Finally, when you do get out of the bed, check the indoor temperature reading on the clock to see if you'll need your slippers before you step down to the floor. It'll tell you how chilly the room is.
