The Wake N' Bacon Alarm Clock Lets You Wake Up to the Smell of Bacon
You may have caught this via the tele on an episode of ABC's Shark Tank, but it absolutely deserves repeating. Because its bacon. And we can never have enough bacon coverage.
Wake N' Bacon is a giant pig-head alarm clock that cooks bacon. With this bedside contraption, you can wake-up to the sultry scent of bacon instead of a local radio show, which could be playing any number of annoying songs and then your day is just off to a bad start. Ensure a happy beginning with bacon.
Inventor Matty Sallin basically bought a cheap alarm clock and rerouted the wire that goes to the speaker to a set of lights. When the alarm is triggered, "pre-cooked bacon" is heated with a pair halogen light bulbs. Four minutes later, your olfactory senses are awakened.
Sallin didn't get any help on Shark Tank. In the comments section of his blog there is a litany of recommendations like not using real bacon, but bacon essence. I could see some potential problems with having raw bacon bedside over night. But, I'm sure those are all minor details. We can put a rover on Mars. Surely we can wake up to bacon without having to actually get up. NASA?
