Bacon lovers, here’s what we’ve all been waiting for! An alarm clock that wakes you up to the smell of bacon cooking – bacon really cooking!
This ingenious alarm clock was created by Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini, Hsiao-huh Hsu with additional assistance from engineer Josh Myer.
It works on the same principal as the Easy Bake Oven we play with as kids. Before you go to bed at night you put some pre-cooked bacon (you know, the kind that you buy in the grocery store to reheat in the microwave) inside a teflon baking tray. Set the alarm, and a halogen light bulb inside the alarm clock heats the bacon, sending the aroma wafting thru the room, awakening you just as it did when mom made bacon every Saturday morning.
Where can you get one? Um . . . I’m not really sure. Check out Matty Sallin’s Mathlete blog for more information.
Here’s their pitch on ABC’s Shark Tank to get it into production.
