Innovate This – Bacon Themed Edition

Sometimes it is important to recognize those that will change the world. Those that possess a genius beyond our imagination. Those that invent an alarm clock/bacon cooker.

Waking up is hard to do. But the smell of bacon makes you hungry. If bacon won’t get you out of bed, I’m not sure what will. Here’s how it works:

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.

I don’t think I’d ever snooze again.
