Those of you who despise the painful buzzing of your alarm clock that aims to smach you out of sweet slumber, listen up! Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini, Hsiao-huh Hsu and Josh Myer have developed an alarm clock called the Wake-n-Bacon that gently wakes you up by emitting the irresistible scent of bacon, and then, as you rub your sleepy eyes awake, you can roll out of bed and munch on the freshly prepared bacon your alarm clock made for you.
The night before, take a couple strips of pre-cooked (and dry) bacon and a piece of paper towel and place them into the clock’s teflon cooking tray (you can use frozen strips of raw bacon too, just be sure to cook it really well until crispy). The bacon won’t rot overnight (after all, it’s been cured in a heart-attack-inducing amount of salt), and will be warmed up to an edible temperature in the morning once the alarm is activated and starts to re-heat the bacon via halogen bulbs. To make sure you aren’t late, set the alarm approximately 4 minutes early – that’s how long it takes for the bacon aroma to be released and reach your sleeping nostrils. The Wake-n-Bacon comes with a smell set of tongs so you can remove the meat without getting your fingers greasy.
Waking up to the smell of Sunday brunch could possibly be the best way to wake up in the morning.
IF THE GLORIOUS SMELL OF COOKING BACON DOES NOT WAKE YOU UP, PERHAPS SEEING YOUR ALARM CLOCK SHRED YOUR MONEY WILL.
