Maybe a config setting? The puzzle is kind of cool, it means I have to 
be awake enough to push the buttons in sequence. As opposed to turning a 
regular alarm clock off without actually waking up. And then oversleep. :-(

Colors are not a problem for the color blind, if there is sufficient
intensity contrast. I.e. combine dark green with bright red or 
vice-versa. Varying the blue intensity also helps, as most color blind 
only are red-green blind. They usually see the difference between blue 
and the reddish-green.
