Wake up and smell the…money?


There are few things worse than the shrill, sleep interrupting sound of your morning alarm. What if instead of being abruptly awoken by that awful sound, you could be gently stirred from sleep by an intoxicating aroma? The team behind the SensorWake wants waking to be the best part of your day by starting it off with your favorite scents.

The SensorWake is an alarm clock that promises to wake you by slowly releasing your favorite scents in the morning. You can choose from several different scent cartridges including espresso, chocolate, and dollar. No word on whether they will sell a napalm scented cartridge for you Apocalypse Now fans.

For those of you who occasionally have a late night at the local malt shop, the SensorWake will emit an audio alarm after 3 minutes if you’re not yet awake.

The SensorWake is a Kickstarter project that can be pre-ordered for $65 with an estimated shipping date of July 2015.

    Bacon? Or for those mornings you really need to get up “Burning house”

      “Burning house” 😉 good one. Here’s a smell that gets us up some mornings “Cat just used the litter box and didn’t cover it up”.

      Bacon would be awesome. I think they missed a marketing gimmick by not making a rose scent, you could literally wake up and smell the roses.
