Wake n' Bacon, an alarm clock that wakes you up to the smell of cooking bacon, has been around a few years. But only since I've been on the bacon beat (ugh!) has it come to my attention. Here's how it works: you place a slice of frozen bacon in the cooking tray, set your clock for ten minutes prior to the time you want to get up, then drift off to sleep on the dreamy thought you'll be awakened by the smell of bacon frying, the work of two halogen lamps tripped by a microchip signaled by a hacked digital alarm clock. Designed by an NYU grad student and a couple of his cronies back in 2005, the device still doesn't appear to be available commercially. But that's not for lack of demand:

Anyone else think it's adorable but slightly perverse that it's in the shape of a pig's head? "Please wake up and enjoy part of my belly coming out of MY HEAD."
