Meat producer Oscar Mayer is giving iOS users a chance to wake up and smell the bacon with this app and iPhone dongle, enabling users to torture themselves every morning with the scent of this meat of the Gods.
Named 'Wake up and smell the Bacon' (convenient title), the dongle plugs into the headphone socket and emits the sound & smell of sizzling bacon to wake people up...or torture yourself with the empty promise of a fry up.
“With nearly two million mentions of #bacon on Instagram, it seems people never get tired of bacon. That’s why our team decided to develop a device to give folks what they long for most,” said Tom Bick, senior director of integrated marketing and advertising at Oscar Mayer in a statement. “As the category leader, Oscar Mayer is thrilled to bring the first-ever, bacon-scented mobile device to market, giving bacon aficionados a new reason to welcome their morning alarm clocks.”
So the question is simple, how do I get my hands on this perfect infusion of technology and bacon? Well...you can't buy it. The only way you can get one is to enter a competition in the U.S.A. Trust me, we're just as frustrated as you! Hopefully Oscar Mayer gets the point and commercialises this.
But for now, here's to the best bacon-related idea you will hear today.
