Wake-n-Bacon


The Wake n' Bacon is a collaborative alarm clock design by Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini and Hsiao-huh Hsu. It wakes you up with the delicious scent of bacon instead of beeping. How?

A frozen strip of bacon is placed in Wake n' Bacon the night before. Because there is a 10 minute cooking time, the clock is set to go off 10 minutes before the desired waking time. Once the alarm goes off, the clock it sends a signal to a small speaker to generate the alarm sound. We hacked the clock so that the signal is re-routed by a microchip that in responds by sending a signal to a relay that throws the switch to power two halogen lamps that slow-cook the bacon in about 10 minutes.
Simple as that. No loud noises, no breaking your alarm, just delicious bacon. Now what you need to do is keep a mini-fridge by the bed so you can toss in another piece, hit snooze, and ten minutes later: more bacon. Toss in another piece, hit snooze, and ten minutes later: more bacon. Toss in another piece, hit snooze, and ten minutes later: more bacon. Toss in another piece, hit snooze, and ten minutes later: you can't see your penis past your pork-gut anymore because you eat two pounds of bacon every morning.

Greatest Invention EVER!?

Thanks Meghan!

This was in an episode of the office, except Michael used a George Foreman Grill and managed to step on it and cook his foot...kudos to the enclosed design, I'm sure he'd be a fan...
