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

No need to be waken up by annoying ringing alarm clock anymore! This clock gently wakes you up with the mouthwatering aroma of bacon.

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.

A digital alarm clock, microcontroller, heating unit.
