Wake N’ Bacon – Smell of Cooking Bacon Alarm Clock

Wake N Bacon   Smell of Cooking Bacon Alarm Clock

Aromatherapy of another kind. Introduced first in 2005, the concept of it caught on like wildfire and captured the public’s imaginations. After additional engineering and testing, the Wake n’ Bacon alarm clock is alive once again. A DIY project from Hsiao-huh Hsu, Josh Myer, Matty Sallin, and Daniel Bartolini, Wake n’ Bacon gradually wakes you from your slumber, but not by ear piercing alarm. Instead, with the enticing aroma of cooked bacon.

Essentially a hacked alarm clock with a halogen lamp and a Teflon coated baking pan. Simply place stripes of already cooked bacon on the pan the evening before. When the set time occurs the next morning, the halogen bulb will heat up the bacon into a delicious crisp and awake you gently. Thus, redefining the term “breakfast on the go”. One drawback though, there might be an increasing number of dreams involving pigs-in-a-blanket hors d’Å“uvre

This makes me laugh, but it's not a good idea for anyone with dogs or cats. The aminals would keep you up all night, trying to get at the bacon. And if they manage to get it while you're asleep, you're not going to get up on time.

Yes, I saw this on Shark Tank, too. Was stupid then and is stupid still. Jesus, that thing is ugly. Maybe they'll sell a few, though.
