Mmmmm… Bacon! If there’s anything that can wake me from a deep slumber, it would be the delicious smell of freshly cooked bacon. Inventors Matty Sallin and Daniel Bartolini seemed to share my sentiments, for they have created the Wake n’ Bacon; an alarm clock that wakes you with the smell of fresh, sizzling bacon. After depositing frozen slices of bacon in the Wake n’ Bacon the night before, you can be sure to awake to the tantalizing smell of bacon! The Wake n’ Bacon simply begins cooking the bacon a few minutes before your alarm is set to wake you. Unfortunately, the Wake n’ Bacon is only a concept at this time. But, if the alarm clock is ever produced, it is sure to have many fans. Click here for more info!
Fred & Friends have developed an amazingly annoying alarm clock, named the Shape Up Clock, that won’t shut off until you perform 30 repetitions with the dumbbell. To give that special someone a not so subtle hint, click here to locate a Fred & Friends retailer.
Here’s a useful gadget: Clocky the alarm clock!
Clocky, sold from Nanda, is an alarm clock that runs and hides to get you out of bed. When Clocky sounds, it randomly runs off on its wheels, and its befuddled owner must catch it in order to silence the alarm! Sounds like a safe bet to get the most groggy sleepers out of bed.
This pillow is for those of use who find traditional alarm clocks both utterly useless and annoying. Useless because we simply turn them off. Annoying because they leave us in a half-conscious, irritated state. The Glo Pillow gently wakes sleepers by slowly increasing the intensity of light in order to simulate a natural sun-rise. Designed by Ian Walton and Eoin McNally, the Glo Pillow uses an LED interface to wake users, beginning 40 minutes before the pre-set alarm time. Theoretically, this will gently wake the user, while keeping him in sync with his Circadian Rhythms. The Glo Pillow was named one of Time’s Best Inventions of the Year in 2007. Unfortunately, the Glo Pillow is just a prototype right now.
