Oscar Mayer’s new iPhone alarm clock wakes you up to the smell of bacon

Of all the smells you can wake up to in the morning, I would have to say that Bacon is perhaps the most alluring. Obviously, that’s not the case for everyone, but if I could, I would create an automatic bacon-cooker that I could program to start cooking bacon at 9am every morning.

Fortunately, thanks to Oscar Mayer, all of that may not be necessary. The company has created a new device, aptly-named ‘Wake Up & Smell the Bacon,’ which pairs with your iPhone to create an alarm clock of sorts that can wake you up to the sound and smell of sizzling bacon…

So your first question is probably: how does this magical device work? Well, there are two pieces in play: the iPhone app and the actual device. The  app takes care of the alarm setup and the audio side of things, and the device emits a pork-like fragrance (probably similar to this).

Here’s a promo clip for the device via TUAW:


So there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that it doesn’t look like the Wake Up & Smell the Bacon device is available for purchase [yet?]—more details on Oscar Meyer’s website. The good news is you can still download the app and at least wake up to the sound of bacon.
