Whoever invented alarm clocks got it all wrong. If you want to get people out of bed, then you might want to give them a better reason to do so. A wailing alarm clock (with an occasionally defective snooze button that makes the entire process a hundred times more annoying) is clearly not what most people have in mind.
Alarm clock makers should take a cue from Oscar Mayer. They’ve come up with the Wake Up and Smell the Bacon app and iPhone dongle duo that basically wakes people up with the delicious scent of bacon.
The Bacon dongle plugs into the iPhone’s headphone jack and works with the app to release the aroma of freshly-cooked bacon when the alarm rings. Aside from that, it also makes the sound that bacon makes when it’s cooking and blurts out random baconisms talking about the wonder that is bacon.
Oscar Mayer will only be making a limited number of dongles and unfortunately, they don’t plan on selling any of them. Instead, you can try your luck and try to win one by taking the quiz on their website.
The contest runs until April 4th.
