Wake n’ Bacon Lures You Out Of Bed With Fresh Bacon

By Luke Anderson

I’ve seen a lot of alarm clocks that try every evil tactic in the world to make sure that you get your lazy self out of bed. They generally make you physically get out of bed, or solve some kind of puzzle before they stop making an annoying noise. But what about an alarm that simply made you want to get up, and rewarded you for doing so? That’s exactly the idea behind the Wake n’ Bacon.

The night before, just pop in a frozen strip or two of bacon, and set the alarm. Shortly before it’s time to wake up, it will start cooking the bacon. The idea is that the sweet aroma of greasy bacon will lure you out of sleep, and out of bed. If the smell isn’t enough to wake you, it will set off a small alarm, which should wake you enough to smell your wonderful bacon. Unfortunately it appears to be only a concept device at the moment (though the creators do have a working model). Rest assured, if the price isn’t outrageous, I’d be first in line to get one of these.

    This reminds me of when Michael (from The Office) burned his foot on his George Foreman grill.

    “I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon, sue me. And since I don’t have a butler, I have to do it myself. So, most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it’s good for me; it’s the perfect way to start the day.”

    I hate whatever makes me wake up, so i would eventually hate bacon. :/

    Cool Ideal. Of course, you could wake up, eat the bacon, and go back to sleep happy.

    @Greg: Of course. I am perfectly capable of eating in my sleep. Wake up, gulp down, back to sleep in less than 2 minutes!

    I don’t think this will ever see production as described. *Sliced* bacon should not be left at room temperature for eight hours before consumption. I do loves the bacon tho!

    regarding the comment about leaving bacon out overnight…how about they had in a UV sanitizing light in there, to prevent unwanted bacteria build-up? haha

    i actually don’t like bacon that much, but i will admit that waking up to someone making breakfast, and smelling that bacon smell is a pretty good way to wake up.

    Wow, and to think, they were even smart enough to include a backup backup alarm in case you don’t wake up from their small alarm:
    a) clock is made of wood
    b) bacon keeps cooking if you don’t get up to eat it
    c) clock catches fire
    d) you get woken up by a 90-decibel smoke alarm screeching : D
