Of course, at this point you’ll need an iPhone to hook it up to, and it’ll need refilling, but the new alarm clock will wake you up with the sound of sizziling bacon and more importantly, its SMELL!

The small device is simply plugged into the headphone jack.

While the app and sizzling sound are free on the website, the device will only go to those who fill out a request and are chosen in a lottery.

This makes the price of an iPhone worth it!

Good luck!

Some lottery! I applied only to be told, "Due to an overwhelming response" I would not be chosen. What a rip!

Well that sucks!

BUT...it's gonna be a very hot item, based on that. Sorry for your bad luck, Don...if it were up to me? You'd be getting one last week!

Technology to do things for us we can - and perhaps ought to be doing - do for ourselves. Astonishing, really. At a glance, all of this stuff seems reasonable. Maybe a shoe that auto-ties itself. Trousers that auto-zip. Pens that write as you speak (exists on the computer, of course). Chips in the brain and eyes, to allow us Google searches right inside our heads, with merely a glance. Toilets that examine stool and check for vitamin deficiencies and, according to what it finds you lack, it orders the required food via online purchase (exists).

I wonder, though, where it ends?

If it keeps going - what, then? Would this be a normal morning? -> Alarm clock to wake you up, and a second object to make your breakfast. You're then fed with an auto-feeding spoon, attached to a device that opens and closes your mandible, effectively chewing for you. While you eat, a new device in the bed bathes you, scrubs you and then clothes you. The bed comes up at an angle, allowing you to slide directly off the foot of the bed and into shoes placed just-right by yet another device. We step forward, once, and onto a device like a skateboard that moves us around the house, using an advanced collision detection system to where we need to go. Morning paper? Unnecessary! The chip that enables you to have Google-at-a-glance in your brain also pulls in news from various feeds and, instead of you actually reading it, it's simply committed to memory for you, ensuring you're on the global up-and-up.

We can then do absolutely nothing but exist as totally inert chunks of human protoplasm.

Because, if so, I want none of it.

Meet George Jetson... sounds like I've seen that before.

Edit: Agree with this comment, and I think the bacon smelleron thing sounds like it would be fun... but been looking forward to smellivision for awhile now. Then when the dwarves enter that troll cave I can smell what they smelled... or maybe I don't want too.

That is one of the stupidest things I have ever seen.

Totally useless. Who the fuck sleeps with their phone on the pillow? Which is how you have to keep it to smell 'the roses' while sleeping.
Keeping it on the night stand just ain't cutting it....

 

Pointless, useless and no one needs it - it's going to be a massive success.

Here's hoping there's a software glitch...or a releasable trojan...anything....that changes the smell to 2 week old gym shorts.....

Great for commuters....First it wakes you up with bacon and coffee scents, then with the optional Fart Mode installed, ( Warning: Not for use in elevators!) you'll have no trouble getting plenty of seating space on the bus or elbow room in the carpool. Start your day out right.

Nothing will get you wide awake quicker than a baby throwing up. Seriously.

Quoting kona0197,

Anything to get attention. Who the hell goes to sleep in that perfect position and than actually wakes up in the same position. iphone? Great I don't have to worry about the app or device. Never leaving my Android phone.
