Bacon Alarm Clock

Invented by Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini, and Hsiao-huh Hsu, this alarm clock gently wakes you with the aroma of freshly-cooked bacon.  Here's how it works:
A frozen strip of bacon is placed in Wake n' Bacon the night before. Because there is a 10 minute cooking time, the clock is set to go off 10 minutes before the desired waking time. Once the alarm goes off, the clock it sends a signal to a small speaker to generate the alarm sound. We hacked the clock so that the signal is re-routed by a microchip that in responds by sending a signal to a relay that throws the switch to power two halogen lamps that slow-cook the bacon in about 10 minutes.

Hello I don't know if you can help with this but.... I am the producer of a morning radio show in Alberta Canada. I was looking to find an interview with someone about "The Wake n Bacon" alarm clock. Can you help out with this?

The Bacon Alarm Clock. At the forefront for the prevention of bacon realted injuries and bubble wrap casts. This was so inspired by Michael Scott. This looks like something Dwight would've created for Michael. Except it would have an analog clock.

So, Your meat strips are sitting in the box for 6-8 hours or longer at room temp before they are cooked for you?

Guess they figure it would take that long for the frozen strips to melt in the closed up box, but food experts say you should always thaw your frozen foods in the fridge.
