Bacon Alarm iPhone Adaptor Wants to Wake You With the Smell of Meat

By Gary Cutlack on at

A US meat-packer is running a contest in which users can win a bacon-smell adaptor for iPhone, with the device supposedly able to pair with an alarm app to wake users with the smell of cooking meat. It'll be like still living with your mum or in a flat above a cafe.

While waiting for the alleged device to appear, users are invited to install an iOS app that makes a sizzling noise and is basically an advert for a bacon brand. We therefore suggest the entire thing might be an enormous advert for a bacon brand, although the terms and conditions [PDF] do appear to suggest Oscar Mayer really will be sending 40 people actual bacon smell emitters.
