every grad student should get one of these

This Okiro! Asa Ichiban Taiyou Senshi - Charenjaa Kitto (Wake up! First Sun Warrior of the Morning - challenger kit) alarm clock wakes kids up "by turning them into Ultraman."
The commander wakes the child up at 6 a.m., and prompts players to put on the helmet and hit a "roger" button to acknowledge their wakefulness. Then, they are ordered to count to 10 in five different languages: English, Japanese, German, Swahili and Malagasy. At that point, the player is "allowed to take off the equipment and start the day"...
Awesome. (Hat tip Marginal Revolution)

Jumping Jehoshaphat , why would you TAKE OFF such an amazing piece of "equipment" once you were already awake enough to count to ten in five different languages? If it turns me into Ultraman (whoever that is), I'm wearing that sucker 24/7 and using my powers for awesomeness. (Side note: Malagasy? Really? Doesn't it seem slightly more likely that one would encounter a person who speaks Chinese - or even Spanish - than someone from Madagascar?)
