the PERFECT alarm clock!

Ok... this is it! Any of you who know me, know that I'm addicted to bacon. (yes, I'm sorry, but I am! ) I could easily be a vegetarian if it weren't for this salty, crunchy, smoky, delectible delight. (ok... now I'm hungry for bacon)

WHAT: An alarm clock that wakes you up with the smell and sizzle of cooking bacon.

WHY: No one likes to wake up, especially by an alarm. This clock gently wakes you up with the mouthwatering aroma of bacon, just like waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of Mom cooking breakfast. Unless you're Jewish.

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.

OMG!!! Wouldn't this be fabulous????
