Why Didn’t I Think Of That? Bacon Alarm Clock

Matty Sallin Blog:

No one likes to wake up, especially by an alarm.

The Wake n’ Bacon 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.

A frozen strip of bacon is placed in 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 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 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.
