'wake n bacon' alarm clock

if you've ever wanted to get up to the smell of bacon this is for you. designed by american designers
matty sallin, daniel bartolini, hsiao-huh hsu, the 'wake n bacon' alarm clock cooks a strip of bacon, ready to eat when the alarm goes off. so how does it work?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.
