who doesn't love bacon?

well, i know a few people who don't. but i certainly don't understand it. bacon, as neil will tell you, is what makes life worth living. and now, with wake 'n bacon, you get to wake up every morning to the smell of a mouth watering strip of delicious delightfulness. here, a description of this fantastical device:

WHAT: An alarm clock that wakes you up with the smell and sizzle of cooking bacon.

WHY: No one likes to wake up, especially by an alarm. This clock gently wakes you up with the mouthwatering aroma of bacon, just like waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of Mom cooking breakfast. Unless you're Jewish.

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.

The only thing better would be to sleep inside the alarm with the bacon.

me like the bacon and the reflective ipod case. i don't eat bacon, of course, unless it's hiding in salad. maybe the clock could toast a sausage. bye for now,

Can I buy one from you? My brother wants it for his birthday. Seriously.

wow, i've always wanted to own a restaurant featuring all things bacon and call it "what's bacon?" though this alarm clock will probably do now.

Just make sure you don't step on it and burn your foot in the morning.

when i am cooking i usually add bacon because the taste is really delicious. Actually the bacon for the breakfast is really good i enjoyed a lot. Although the ingredients of the meals be simply if you chose the right ones,the taste will be wonderful.
