Version 1 by Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini, Hsiao-huh Hsu
Version 2 by Matty Sallin with engineering by Josh Myer
WHAT: An alarm clock that wakes you up with the smell of cooking bacon instead of a buzzer. The aroma wakes you up, then you can open the oven component and eat the bacon itself.
WHY: Everyone hates to be jarred awake by noise, but that’s what nearly every alarm clock does (even your favorite music or radio can be jarring first thing in the morning). This clock gently wakes you up with the mouthwatering aroma of bacon, just like waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of Mom cooking breakfast…unless you keep kosher (sorry, Rabbi!).
USE: Just put a couple strips of pre-cooked bacon on a paper towel in the teflon cooking tray the night before, and set the Cook Time for 4 minutes. The bacon can be left out overnight with no problem since most of the moisture has been already cooked out of it, and there’s no preservatives besides the fact that it is salt-cured and smoked like all bacon is. Set your alarm for 7am and by 7:04 your bedroom is filled with the strong aroma of cooking bacon. You can then use the included tongs to pull out the cooking tray and eat the bacon without getting your fingers greasy. Before I discovered pre-cooked bacon, I used frozen strips of raw bacon to keep them from spoiling overnight and cooked them at a longer cooking time.
HOW: First, we hacked a cheap alarm clock. When the alarm goes off in an alarm clock, the clock is sending a signal in the form of a wavelength along a wire to a small speaker to generate the alarm sound. We cut that wire and re-routed it to a pin on a microchip, and programmed that microchip to respond to that particular wavelength input by triggering a relay (essentially an on/off switch) to send power to a pair of halogen lightbulbs that safely heat the bacon to a crisp.

Bacon ! Definitely going to wake me up for sure….
Love this. What a brilliant idea. 😉
I saw you on with the Sharks and I love your clock and wish you the best!
I really really want, where do I get it??????
Hey i want one too! did you get one? how do i get one!
i would love one!! where do you get them?!??!?!?!!?
saw you on Shark Tank…
try this … distill the essence of bacon (like distilling alcohol) this will give you a concentrated liquid, then atomize or arisol it.
You achieve the same result without the fire hazard.
food … err.. bacon for thought.
No way!! Being able to actually eat the bacon should remain part of the design! : )
I’m pretty sure that waking up to the smell of bacon without actually getting to eat bacon qualifies as torture under the Geneva Convention.
this comment made my day
I’ll second that ^
3rd! And good luck Matty, we like the way you think!
That’s what I though, then add the sound of bacon cooking for the alarm sound.
you sir are so so so wrong, smelling bacon and not being able to eat it is like that feeling when you where little and you chased the ice cream truck but you where to slow and you got tired so you stop and just listen to it softly fade away. and then you cry.

love this i want one so bad
Instead of making real bacon cook, make a sent that dispurses at your time of waking up. no cooking, or threat of dieing in your sleep.
I agree, make a slits at the top of the device where people can slide pre-loaded scent sheets in and when it gets warmed up at the alarm time and release the scent. Not by cooking anything. You have to think people are not going to always remember to clean that stuff since not everyone sets the alarm every single day. Also his point that people having easy bake ovens is true but I still would not want that anywhere near my head nightly radiation comes to mind even its there or not. Scents baked bread, coffee, flavored teas or the bacon. People will pay for the sheet refills.
Uh I think you mean make a scent as I’m not sure what exactly your sending…
No. That is just a tease. It would be more jarring than the buzzer when my brain figures out that there is no delicious bacon under my nose. Terrible idea.
Too many people seem to think that the bacon cooker will be frying raw bacon in hot grease on your bedside table. Lots of people don’t seem to understand that the “cooker” just reheats a cooked piece of bacon with a relatively cool heating element (think “Easy-Bake Oven”).
It uses two halogen bulbs. It’s an Easy-Bake oven with an upgrade. If properly constructed, it is no more hazardous than a floor lamp.
Except an Easy-Bake oven isn’t made out of flammable wood. I’m all for the design, just not the unnecessary wood part. I’d love to wake to the smell of bacon, but not bacon with a side of fire alarm…

make da wakin bacon out of metal
Why don’t you use a bacon aroma spray(no heat)and a recording of the sound of bacon cooking.Just thinking outside the pig box.
but i want da bacon
I think your idea is great. I like to sleep as long as possible, but I do still need to eat breakfast. I would buy one if it were available. It sounds like a wonderful idea and its not STUPID!!! Good Luck!
I don’t know what those sharks were talking about! What about computerized coffeemakers??? They are not in the bedroom! The Wakin Bacon could go in the kitchen. The one shark even said, people enjoy the smell of bacon coming from the kitchen where their mom is making it. Hello? Put the Wakin Bacon in the kitchen! Duh!
So your saying you want to have bacon, unrefrigerated for 8+ hours attracting bugs and rodents and then have it cook in the kitchen unattended until it wakes you up? Now you’ve overslept, have a bug and rodent problem, and lacking a place to live due to the fire that is bound to occur. You might also be lacking your own life after the fire……….
The design looked bug proof and I’ve read about this clock before, it said it automatically turns off, so i don’t think it would set your house on fire. but i do agree that it might not wake you up.
Matty, your presentation on Shark Tank sucked, but your idea doesn’t. However, rethink how your product works. Scent technology has come a long way, you don’t need to use real bacon. You can use scents, use less power, and the scent can be varied.
Mr. Sallin, I saw your device on Shark Tank and was amazed that these Entrepreneurs didn’t even bother to think outside of the box. I basically have resolved fundamental issues that they proposed during your interview or presentation. I don’t want to post the resolutions to those issues on this board..so if interested please use my email address and I will give you that info on the resolutions. Thanks.
Dont give up! I love this bacon alarm clock and so does the rest of people that love bacon, and I dont EVER comment on blogs!
Believe in yourself and your bacon alarm clock will sell.
I am watching you on Shark Tank right now and I LOVE your idea………..
I want to buy one but, don’t know the price.
saw you on the “sharks” t.v. show. I thought instead of using bacon you could use an air freshener or candle that warms up. One that smells like bacon, or waffles. There are air fresheners that warm up and smell because they warm up with the outlet. Just a thought. What a fun idea. Good luck!!
We have seen your product on Shark tank and would suggest you to prototype a bacon scented aroma alarm clock using scented aroma.It would be effective and also safer.
When it exist I will be buying one.
i think you should market this product as a motel item, but loose the pig look and set it farther from the bed.

LOL this is a disgrace to fat people. LOL…
Great novelty gift. I disagree with the sharks – plenty of people will love it. Go to THINK GEEK, they sell this kind of stuff.
I think it’s brilliant! Don’t listen to the Sharks, they are often wrong. I also don’t think they understood that the bacon was already cooked, so the amount of energy needing to re-heat it won’t be that large.
I was thinking, perhaps you could create different types of bacon scents that could be diffused from the clock? Hmmm…
Anyhow, stick with it. It’s sure to be a hit! And I don’t even eat bacon :oD
Saw you on Shark Tank and I was disappointed they didnt endorse you and your product. I llike the idea but I,m not a millionair investor. I just thought you would like to know you have the support of “the little guy” Thanks Matty
Just watched Shark Tank and I have an idea for you. Please send me an email so we can discuss.
I just saw this on “Shark Tank.” I think this is an awesome idea. I would love to have one. You hould try and see if you can get the website http://www.thinkgeek.com to invest. They have tons of bacon stuff on their website.
Saw this on Shark Tank tonight… think it really should have a buzzer built in too. Even if the novelty of the bacon-making wears off, at least it can still then function as a normal alarm clock (heck, maybe even have a function for it to OINK!) Also, I thought the fairly obvious slogan of “Wake up and smell the bacon!” would have been used. I agree with one of the sharks that this is def a gag gift.
Oh, I also meant to mention that I have never known anyone to wake up by smelling something…? so I wasn’t sure how that was going to function properly. And how safe is it to keep bacon out for that long?
Why don’t you just create the scent of bacon like an air freshner does? It would eliminate any safety issues and you could sell the scent wavers or drops for each unit. The unit would turn on an create the smell which is the attraction, not the actually bacon.
It could reduce the size and cost of each unit as well.
You should check out kickstarter.com. I think it’s the perfect way for you to raise enough capital to make a prototype and go into production.
I saw Shark Tank and I was disapointed that no one on the panel would help out – I would buy one in a heartbeat! Did you notice the guy who was so caustic (as usual) was offering to buy the model for $300? So if he thought it would be such a bad idea, why did he want to buy it so bad? I did see their point about not wanting to keep it in the bedroom. I personally would put mine in the kitchen, because that bacon smell is going to waft through the house to the bedroom. Please let me know when and where I can buy one!
Have you contacted Think Geek? They have a whole bacon section.
I know how you can do the bacon alarm without the possible danger.
It’s an easy solution and will probably sell like crazy.
Naturally I can’t release the specifics on e-mail. If you are interested,
call 856-270-2376. I am an individual who watched you on Tank Shark
and I think my idea will work more easily and be more economical to
make and sell. Plus there are a lot of others aromas that could be in-
Your product would be better served if you contact motel chains about putting the clock in their rooms along with their coffee makers.
I’ll buy 2. What is the cost of the wooden version?
Pingback: Best Clock Ever!
I just saw this on shark tank and it seems to me that their greatest problem was the bacon next to the bed. I live in central florida next to disney. If you’ve ever been to Disney, when you walk by their bakery you smell fresh baking bread. However, the bread smell is contained from when they cooked it earlier and dispersed as people walk by. I suggest you come up with a normal alarm clock that also has the capacity to disperse the synthetic smell of bacon. Then you have a normal alarm clock PLUS/OR the smell of bacon without the risk or work of putting actual bacon in the box. Also, please email me, I’d like some information on what you think gained you a position on Shark tank because I have something to pitch as well.
My daughter and I saw this on Shark Tank and couldn’t believe that they didn’t go for it!! WE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT GIVE UP!!!! Go to Pitch Men, go to J&D’s Foods, there are many many people who would buy this and use it!! Not just as a “gag” gift (though I know many people would give it as that) but I know LOTS of people that would own and use it!! If it was available I can tell you RIGHT NOW there would be 4 in this household, one for me, one for my hubby, one for my teen and one for my tween. We love our bacon and how cool would this be!!! =) Keep trying and do not give up for the sake of your dream, I know you can make it!
Hello! I saw the show last nite and thought you had a great idea! Who doesn’t love the smell of bacon in the morning? The investors felt that it was a hazard to have bacon cooking next to the bed…have you ever thought of just bottling the smell of bacon and having the aroma released to wake up the sleeper? If they can bottle perfumes…why not the smell of bacon…you could have a built in fan to fan the aroma at the designated time. Just a thought…this eliminates the fire hazard! I love your entrepreneural spirit! Good Luck!
Hi there Matty,
Ok, so the Shark Tank guys weren’t into bacon in the bedroom. But bacon…. ah, bacon- really, everyone loves the smell of bacon in the morning and I can’t get my ass out of bed no matter how many alarms (including one that zooms around the room making insanely obnoxious noises) I may set. I do believe that bacon next to the bed might do the trick though. So, if you find yourself needing some product photos once you get that glorious good morning machine ready to go, feel free to let me know and I’d be happy to take some…. on the house. Not that you’ll need them, but just thought I’d offer in case you do at some point.

I want one asap!!!
If you still need help building a prototype, I might know of some resources.

Great idea. Cuban was right, enough people will want this to make it a viable product. Patent it, and develop it organically as fast as you can. Of course, only if you really want to make a commercially viable product out of it.

Pingback: things i like tuesday | An Autobiography
Saw you on Shark Tank.
The problem that they had was cooking bacon next to the bed….
while I agree that I would not personally do this, I have a thought
as to how to solve your problem, make it safe, cost less to manufacture
and truly fix the problem you have with the Sharks.
Disney does this sort of thing all over their theme parks. As you walk
through sections just before food courts, there are atomizers spraying
food smells into the air to get people to unknowingly think they are
all of a sudden hungry. It is subliminal sales tactics.
Simply put an atomizer with whatever smell you want – bacon… but you
can also have wak’n ale… with a beer smell. Now you open up a huge
market area of novelty fun…. just a thought – but I think it could be
profitable if you make a few changes. Love the clean design, just take
out the element of danger and put in an atomizer that mists on alarm
setting and also when they hit snooze. It can also be a dual purpose
alarm clock with a “fresh air” home deodorizer built in. Not so novelty
now. Like those Glade Home Misters that women go nuts over to keep
their homes smelling fresh – just a thought. Send me a “thanks for the
idea” check when you make it big!!! Best of luck. Jolan

ya know it would be a sweet idea sell this on like ebay or something lots of people would buy it
Please email me ~ interested to know the cost! My husband LOVES bacon and it’d be a great gift!
Where do I buy one or are they not available for purchase yet
What is wrong with some of you? If you use a bacon aroma then you lack the one thing you want – namely bacon! That would be like getting to the end of a rainbow and finding a pot of confederate money! Please, Please, Please don’t listen to these people and bring the bacon!
No, seriously, I want one. Someone PLEASE tell me where I can get one… I’ll pay up the wazoo for it!! Perfect gift idea!
Can I buy this product? If yes, how?????
All of you suggesting it just have the scent/sound of bacon are idiots. Who would want to be woke up to the sound and smell of it then be denied the taste? I would be cranky as hell I didn’t get my bacon and then be an ass to everyone. Amazing invention.
I think it’s funny that all these people are suggesting just to make an aroma spray. The point is that food is ready for the eating when you wake up…
The ideas of marketing to motels and Think Geek are good.
I personally would buy this as a gift for my boyfriend. Even if it were a one time use, I think it’s a good idea and would be totally worth it for the right price 🙂
Sign me up! I definitely need one of these!
all the people talking about just using the scent of just don’t get this product… it’s genius straight out of chittychittybangbang, breakfast making itself is the whole idea! I love bacon and it is impossible to wake me up in the morning so I think its wonderful!
I would buy one of these right now if they were for sale. Please find a way to get it on the market!
I would add an automatic shut off switch to prevent fires with the heat and wood.
And if you want a maple smell to the bacon Which I love a small fire proof container to sit inside with the bacon or pour a little maple syrup on bacon. 🙂 mmmmmm nummy
of course if you wanted to use real bacon you could have a small cooling area on top with a timer and a release trap. it holds the cold bacon but when the timer goes off it opens a trap door that drops the bacon into the cooker. and then it starts to cook the bacon till alarm goes off. just a idea I like real bacon over precook.
I want to order one e mail me
Why does everybody suggest the scent of Bacon? And have to spoil things with doomsday scenarios? Its a Damn Bacon Alarm Clock! Life should be so simple. It is what it is, that’s what it was meant to be. I say 100% success.
There are bread makers on the market which turn on like an alarm clock. You could put pre cooked bacon pieces in the bread and have the aroma of fresh bacon bread and take it one step further and build a pig body bread maker
Brilliant idea. I’d buy a few if they were available as gives. I’m not a big time investor but would be willing to invest some in your funding round to be part of something this cool. You can reach me via email. I bet you could easily raise the 40 K with a few investors on this website. I think the aroma idea is a great direction to pursue. Could be a whole line of clocks. Flowers, fresh bread, etc. Wake to a different aroma every day of the week …
Nothing like smelling bacon in your dreams while you die in a house fire.
The “aroma” idea makes safety sense, but the really cool thing about your invention is that you nibble real bacon first thing in the morning. The chewing and tasting arouses your senses further than smelling and will help you wake up. The mere smell of bacon wouldn’t prompt you into action which would keep you from hitting the snooze alarm. The wooden box adds a touch of danger, too: you can’t roll over and go back to sleep with a fire hazard by your head (although I don’t believe this to be more of a hazard than a simple space heater). Buy a $9 fire extinguisher for the night stand and live a little. I LOVE it.
Once mass-produced, it would be made out of metal and plastic. Only the prototype is made of wood.
Can I please buy one? Please? I’m totally serious.
An automatic kitchen appliance that cooks bacon doesn’t have to be a bedside alarm clock. It could simply be an automatic kitchen appliance that cooks bacon. That would be pretty nice, actually, especially if it could cook sausage patties or maybe hash browns too.
Personally I hate the smell of bacon in the morning. It would make me bury my head under the blankets and hope that the smell goes away soon. Oatmeal, on the other hand, has a pretty good chance of getting me out of bed.
I want to see the survey that the guy passed around. Did it have a check box for bacon or did people come up with that on their own? If it was a check box, I’m calling “confirmation bias”.
Everybody needs to stop fucking suggesting “bacon aroma”. You’re all missing the point. You get to eat the fucking bacon.

brilliant idea! I think this would be the best alarm clock for my bacon-loving boyfriend that absolutely abhors the idea of waking in the morning. And consequently, goes to uni without breakfast. This would ensure that he eats something.
All except for the last several commenters completely missed the point: waking up to warm, yummy bacon in the morning! I agree with the suggestion of an automatic shut-off; that should take care of the fire hazard, along with being made of metal/plastic instead of wood (though the character of the wood is charming). Kudos on the great idea!
(and I also agree that thinkgeek.com would be an excellent seller of the Wake ‘n’ Bacon!)

This would be perfect in the kitchen rather than the bedroom. After a few minutes of the alarm going off and the smell of bacon in the kitchen, I know my entire house would be happy campers!
Great idea. For safety reasons perhaps if you could you change it from reheating in 10 minute to a scented bacon pad or any other scented pad?
Lots of fun. Congrats on Shark Tank appearance.
The folks recommending a scent-only version have probably never had sex (with another person). Trust me, once you smell the real thing, you’ve just got to go all the way.
Exactly!!!! Smell of bacon but no real thing? F* that. If I don’t get to eat it I’m staying in bed.
what you need is the essence of bacon. revise thd unit to utilize a gel pack or warming liquid like plug in room air scents
You know I could just put a timer on my toaster oven, right? There are coffee pots with timers and this isn’t far from that.

Just saw you on “Sharks’ Tank” … good luck!
I just saw it on shark tank! I would definately buy one! yum!
Hmmm… pre-cooked bacon sits unrefrigerated all night, to be re-heated in the morning, and you want someone to EAT that?
Forget the lawsuits regarding fires for a moment, each time it heats up there is a small chance of a fire. Each time you leave pre-cooked bacon at room temp all night and then reheat and people eat it you will have an extremely HIGH risk of getting sick.
The Sharks were right on… too risky! Neat idea, but so were “Lawn Darts”
Please contact me I’ve added Your idea to mine and I think WE could get the sharks to bite.
Shark Tank, I show I love didn’t give you the alternative to your idea. I hope you pursue the option of creating a bacon scent based oil. Scent oils usually take about five minutes to heat than release the scent. Redesign your product with an bacon scent oil and you will have a hit.
This will probably have an impact on the sale of bacon. After you smell it, you want to eat it.
Also, consider the turkey bacon smell, too.
Tell people that it uses a light bulb to heat the bacon. Lights have been beside beds since the lamp was invented. The problem I have with the product is that u are not suppose to leave meat out of the fridge over 2 hours. Will heating it 10 mins kill all bacteria?
I really want one. And I think there needs to be real bacon, not just a scent because it would be disapointing to wake up to the smell but no bacon
GET THAT TO EPIC MEAL TIME :DDDDD

I can’t think of anything better to wake up to, other than… (no, better not say that here) ahem, well, maybe a cup of really good coffee and some bacon. Heaven!
However, there is one thing that would improve the bacon alarm clock – a built-in toaster. You Yanks (I’m a Brit, by the way) have not yet discovered the delights of the bacon sandwich. If the alarm clock could cook the bacon and toast the bread I will marry it. And no, I ain’t a weirdo or nuthin’.

Genius! The gentle morning-after-the-night-before alarm.
I want one of these!! amazing!
Can you snooze? =D
Fun idea, not practical tho. Why people have fire alarms and smoke detectors? Because if the odor of an entire house burning don’t wake people up, I don’t think that the odor of 2 bacon strips will.

Want one NOW!!!!
I’m pretty sure Matty dropped the idea after being humiliated on Shark Tank. There hasn’t really been any movement here since then. None of the recent posters of the past several months seem to have noticed that Matty doesn’t even respond here. I don’t think anyone has heard from him since April.
Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the web the easiest factor to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst folks consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

The idea is great. DO NOT use just a scent. Who wants to wake up hungry and realize they can’t eat what they are smelling?

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
Pre-cooked bacon is not kept in the refrigerator section at my store. i don’t see why you think it would spoil over night.
I would buy one of these given the right price!

possible to buy this soon?
its on sharktank live! right now
This is a fantastic idea that is not just some fad gift for Dads. College kids and bacon lovers everywhere would love it. I have two sons that would love to cook bacon from bed. I hope you get your product made. Best of luck$$$$
Can you buy this?
Please get a kickstarter campaign going for this. Will fund for bacon.
I would buy this! I can’t believe that the sharks turned it down. If put in Spencers it would sell. Great novelty gift for the Bacon lover!
Saw you on Shark tank a few minutes ago; must be a re-run. If you have not been able to take this product to market yet, contact me. I can help. http://www.valdiviez.biz. C R Valdiviez
Can you buy these?
Love the waken bacon. Saw you on the Sharks, maybe you should try bacon scented oil. I don’t think the sharks would have a problem with waking up to yummy bacon aromatherapy.
would love to know how to buy one of these!
I saw a show on PBS and it reminded me of your device. And now you’re on Shark Tank again.
In any event, in Britain, during the war and through the 1960s, they had tea makers with alarm clocks in them that sat next to the bed that would brew a cup of tea when it went off. I’ve been to motels that had coffee makers either attached to the wall near the bed or at least in the room not far from the bed.
Also, on the show, there was nothing about it heating the bacon with lightbulbs. The whole talk by Kevin about it bursting into flames was so unfair!
Are these for sale
I wonder if the inventor has considered posting this on Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/) where you can invest in someone’s idea to help raise the funds to have it made. It’s become a hugely popular site with millions of dollars raised to help get great products made! This would seem the ideal way to go with the Wake ‘N Bacon
We’re can you buy it
Watching the Shark Tank repeat now. This is the stupidest idea I have ever of! Where can I buy my dad one?
Were can you buy this
I have to have one! I have to three! You have to get this to market!!
The one shark was right, id buy one for every single family member and all my soldiers in my unit as a gag gift. Heck it could evan be made to be differant animals cars evan shapes. I hope it gets made
People, this will not burn your house down or kill you! The original design made ow wood will not be their final design. It will be made with metal and plastic like the easy bake ovens. This unit just warms pre cooked bacon, not cooking under open flame! You have lamps, heaters, air conditioners, curling irons, etc. That are plugged in and left on all the time. This will not burn your house down! Great product Matty – keep going and they will sell all over the world!
People insist on picturing it as a bacon cooker — that is, a pan cooking raw bacon that spatters grease and requires high heat. That said, I think a kitchen appliance that did exactly that — cooked raw bacon or sausage on a timer — would be pretty neat. The refrigeration aspect is the problem. But that’s not what the Wake n’Bacon is (or was). The Wake n’Bacon appears to be essentially an “Easy Bake Oven” with a timer.
The premise is that it is safe to leave strips of cooked bacon exposed for 8 to 12 hours (a premise that I won’t argue with but which should be verified!), and then when the timer is triggered, the heating element (an incandescent lamp, I believe) warms the (already cooked) bacon so that the aroma is released.
A couple of unfortunate elements: The name of the product is derived from stoner humor which might not play very well in certain marketing contexts. The device is extremely specialized to bacon, and not everyone eats bacon. Nobody talks about the fact that in order to make this device work at all, you have to go to the trouble of cooking bacon the night before, and you have to accept that leaving bacon out and unrefrigerated is safe and healthy, and that your cooked bacon doesn’t have an odor that keeps you awake.
Like I said, an automated meat cooker (think “Foreman Grill” but even simpler and automatic (self-cleaning?)) would be really interesting, for the _kitchen_, not for a bedside table.
Also would people please note that Mr. Sallin hasn’t commented here one single time in well over a year? He may read the comments here, but he certainly doesn’t respond to them.
After seeing you on shark tank like everyone else, I have to put in another vote for getting yourself on kickstarter.com right away. What you need is cash to design/build/produce and the best way to do that is to let your future customers order now to help fund all that.
You can see just from the post on here (along with the initial viral spread) you know there are plenty of people that are interested and that would be even more so if those same people can help contribute to helping you get it done along with you. You already have the hype and once you get a kickstarter started all those same tech blogs that initially posted about your idea/prototype will post about your kickstarter really getting it going.
I’ll be honest, with hype, I don’t see you having a problem getting at least $170k from kickstarter and likely more. Yes, you miss out on the expertise the sharks could have brought but this thing will sell itself once it’s an actual product. Hell, it’s already selling itself as just an idea as you can see all the people who want to buy one NOW.
You could then even message the sharks and tell them they can contribute to the kickstarter and then they can get their own “pig box” lol
PS I’ll become your VP of marketing for a pretty fair percentage and really get this thing out there for you (us?) ;).
i like bacon and i think that the people one shark tank made a mistake and the first minuite it comes out i am buyin it.
This has to be the best idea ever… I love bacon!
Serious comment. You either need to tell me how to build one, or how much money to send you. I need a Wake N’ Bacon. No joking around. Blueprints or an adress to send the check to. I want it. Email me. Whatever. We can talk if you want, I don’t care if my house burns to the ground. THis is legit the greatest invention ever!
Schematics or where to send my check
I want one.
I will pay for it.

I like this idea, and I think it could be useful for more then just bacon.If that guy had entered the tank with a UL rating already approved, we might all be waking up to bacon.
I would buy one in a heartbeat if I could. I don’t have the skill to build one myself. I just have to throw in another plug for (kickstarter.com). I’ve seen them make some dreams happen. I’m considering hooking my toaster oven to a simple electric timer for the same effect, but this would be so much cooler (and safer).
Where can I get them? I want to buy 6 of them for gifts and 1 for myself!

This seems like a great idea. You just have to be careful not to get burned and be left with a burn scars.
Hey Matty. I know of a company that would most likely endorse and take your alarm to the next level. Please email me thanks
hey guys, this sounds like a great idea and i wouldn’t mind getting a fresh slice of bacon every morning! keep it up!
guys …. what the technology name for this idea …. i mean what that technology used in this product
“Incandescent lamp”, marfel.
Pingback: Waking up with bacon « Appliances Online Blog
OK, OK….Fabulous invention, and the way I feel that if for some godforsaken reason a fire starts d/t the bacon cooking, it would be worth it as long as it happens AFTER you eat the bacon. Not a bad way to go! Oh, and let me know when you come out with Model 2, the one the eggs, toast and coffee to go with it. Now THEN, I’m all in! Great ideal and so adorable in every way. You ROCK!

Oh. My. Goddess.
That is all.
Any chance we could can purchase these for Xmas gifts?
Eating the cooked bacon is an essential part of this alarm process because no one can roll over and go back to sleep while actually eating something savory, chewy, and flavorful, like bacon. Chewing will further arouse the alarm-awakened person, plus just one slice of bacon ingested will act like an appetizer, revving up the person’s appetite, making them desperate to get out of bed and eat a full breakfast. A growling stomach (plus a probably full bladder), is a primal sensory motivator to get one up and moving!
