Nothing beats the smell of bacon in the morning… (besides, maybe, freshly baked croissants and bacon)
Imagine being gingerly awoken from a restful night’s sleep by the sweet smell of buttery baked goods, as opposed to a blaring alarm clock. It’s a reality. It’s called SensorWake.
This start-up company began just over a year ago when 17-year-old (yeah, 17 years old) Guillaume Rolland had trouble waking up one morning, and decided that his irritating alarm clock would be no more. Over the course of the year, his garage-built prototype made its way to the Google Plex and placed in the Top 15 “inventions that can change the world” at the 2014 Google Science Fair.
Rolland, still a part-time engineering student at UTC, said, “I thought that now, in the 21st century, everyone should have the right to wake up happy, relaxed and peaceful, ready for a great day. So I invented the SensorWake.” We agree, Guillaume, and we thank you.
The SensorWake comes with the choice of the following two-capsule packs:
Each capsule wakes you up 60 times, so each pack will last approximately 4 months. And, Rolland even regarded the earth in his efforts, making the pods recyclable.
