'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 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."

(Of course it would be bacon from a local, farmed pig! - UFG).
