Dragging yourself out of bed for that 9L or early morning drill can be a pain. Humans are not meant to get up this early—especially not after a long night of studying… or doing whatever college students do.

Is that bacon? Yes, yes it is.

Oscar Mayer has engineered a Bacon Scent Alarm Clock for iPhones (sorry Android users), which will surely have you jumping out of your bed. When the alarm goes off, not only will it give off the sound of sizzling bacon, but the device will also emit the scent of bacon. You can download the app from iTunes but without the device, your mornings will unfortunately be bacon-scentless.
