Anyone who has kids knows that it can be a chore to get them out of bed to get ready for school. Especially when they're getting back into the routine after a summer off. A California company has a something that might just take some of the sting out of the whole "rise and shine" routine.
Cygnett's "Groove Tunes" is a speaker system that plays music from an iPod Nano -- and doubles as an alarm clock. That means you can set it to wake you to your favorite song or playlist.
In addition, the kid can sleep well, knowing that the Nano is being charged for use the following day.
It has a snooze button for those who want to coax a few more minutes of sleep out of their pillow. It's designed for first-, second- and third-generation Nanos.
It comes in five colors: black, silver, blue, pink and green and retails for about $50 bucks.
