The Oscar Mayer brand intends to introduce something new to the world for the first time ever with a unique iOS device that will enable those who wake up early in the morning to the wonderful smell of bacon, all without having to even lift a frying pan, not to mention avoiding having to clean up the kitchen afterwards from all the oil slicks that have formed along the walls and stove. Not only that, the device comes with the perfect name – Wake Up & Smell the Bacon, where it will synchronize with the Oscar Mayer Wake Up & Smell the Bacon iPhone application which will emit the scent and sound of sizzling bacon when it is time to wake up and face a brand new day.
Those who are interested will be able to apply from now all the way through to Friday, April 4th over here in order to stand a chance to pick up a free Wake Up & Smell the Bacon device. There might not be any free lunch in the world, but surely the free smell of bacon first thing in the morning is worth a shot! In order to use the Wake Up & Smell the Bacon, all you need to do is to download the Wake Up & Smell the Bacon app, hook up the detachable device into the headphone jack of an iPhone, and then enjoy the scent of sizzling bacon. You will be unable to find this unique device in stores with limited quantities in circulation, so the proverb “the early bird gets the worm” applies here.
If Lady Luck has deserted you, and you did not receive this special device, there is still the option to download the Wake Up & Smell the Bacon application for free in the App Store, so that you can always wake up to the sound of sizzling bacon in addition to amusing bacon sayings or “baconisms”, as it is better known. Want the smell? Go ahead and cook some bacon strips for yourself.

We all have secrets that we need to keep safe. However, if your information is digital, you’ll occasionally want to move it around so that it won’t be found so easily. This can be anything from copies of your drivers license or passport to love letters you never intend to send. Either way, you want to know exactly where they are, so you never have to worry about them falling into the wrong hands.
The Kisai Upload Wood LCD Watch will store whatever information you need to carry around, and hides it in plain sight. This is a timepiece that has memory storage which you can dip into through the provided USB cable. It comes with a 2GB MicroSD card, but you can always change it out for something larger (there are no capacity limitations). You will need to take out a few screws to do this, but it shouldn’t be too challenging.
Not only will this store information, but it looks wonderfully classy as well. This is a combination of wood and metal, and you’ll be able to choose between a dark sandalwood with silver and a blue LCD, or a maple with gold compliment with a natural LCD display. The numbers on this wristwatch are stretched in the same way road signs are, which means they are best read at a lower angle. If not, you’ll have a hard time discerning the hours, minutes, seconds, and hundredths of a second. This will cost you around $109, or more should you choose to get a larger MicroSD card.

Don’t you wish that you had magical powers to exhibit and impress those who decide to pay your home a visit? Sure, you might not be a new tycoon who has just cashed out big time because Google or Facebook decided to buy your company and intellectual property for a few billion dollars, so you lack the financial resources to model your home after a high tech space installation that is really “smart” in a sense, such as voice controlled temperature and the like. Perhaps something more basic and of course, affordable, might be right up your alley – like the €37.79 Clap-On Alarm Clock.
No matter how much you have partied the night before, there is still an office to go to the next morning, not to mention plenty of work to finish up. Hence, the assistance of an alarm clock can never be understated, but with bother with the traditional alarm clock when you can let the wonders of clapping do the job for you? The Clap-On Alarm Clock will feature a red LED panel that will reveal itself only when you clap. Sporting 12 as well as 24 hour formats, the cube clock sports a chic wood veneer which would perfectly complement any interior. It might just impress your date, too.

Not all clocks are created equal, and when it comes to a wall clock, you might want to settle for something as ordinary as a regular IKEA timepiece, or you could opt to fork out a decent amount of coin for something which is truly unique. Case in point, the $60 Busy Bee Wall Clock. Bees are an industrious lot, where this particular hive or swarm mentality will be able to pull through an entire colony in tough times, although such thinking might not necessarily work well in a human context. Still, there is something fascinating with bees, and this nature-inspired timepiece would definitely deserve a place in the living room of any home.
The Busy Bee Wall Clock is the creation of father and son team, Lance and L J Nybye, where they decided to merge the geometric beauty of a honeycomb alongside the human innovation of laser-cutting technology. This particularly delicate, hexagonal lattice was created using precision-cutting decorative plywood, where it is then painstakingly hand-glued in order to create a layered look, before it is endowed with a coat of cheerful, honey-yellow, water-based dye. There will be a solitary, laser-cut honeybee that rests in the 12 o’clock spot.

Everyone deserves a fond childhood memory, and for many of us who grew up in the 1980s as well as the early 1990s, you would surely know of the experience of feeding a regular arcade cabinet quarter after quarter after quarter in an attempt to complete some of the classic arcade titles, including the likes of Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and in the later years, Street Fighter II. Well, here is one way to enjoy a blast from the past in a practical manner – with the $59.99 Classic Arcade Wristwatch.
The name of this particular device says it all – the Classic Arcade Wristwatch would feature a classic arcade cabinet right on your wrist, although it would have already undergone the rigors of a “shrinking ray”, or so it seems. There will be fire buttons that will light up the dial in red, while making the “pew” noise that we are all so familiar with, but other than that, everything else remains pretty much ornamental. It would be cool if they could really have squeezed in an actual, playable arcade title in there. The Classic Arcade Wristwatch has been fully decorated for a fictional game of Galactic Defense, and arrives in a stainless steel case, black leather band with white contrast stitching.

When it comes to telling the time, most of us would rely on our respective smartphones to get the job done at a single glance, although there will be some of us out there who prefer the good old fashioned way of a regular clock. The thing about clocks is this – some of them might actually feature some boring design that you could end up overlooking the time itself, so why not embrace the future with the $129.95 Giant Display Atomic Wall Clock?
This is a unique wall clock which is not only oversized by itself, it is also capable of maintaining its unerring accuracy from the radio clock transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado. The digital display itself would rely on 4.5” high numbers, which would ensure that you can easily tell the time even from up to a whopping 30′ away. Not only that, there will be 2” high numbers located right below the time, where the display would tell of the date, day, indoor and outdoor temperature. In addition, there will be a wireless outdoor thermometer which communicates with the clock from up to 330′ away, where it delivers a range of -4° F to 122° F. Fret not about Daylight Saving Time, it will be adjusted automatically, and you will be able to enjoy accurate time across the entire lower 48 United States.

It’s very difficult to pull ourselves out of bed in the morning. The allure of an extra five minutes of sleep is often too overwhelming. Sadly, that brief respite often turns into a thirty minute ordeal in which we wake in a panic and go careening to the front door. While the loud sounds of an alarm can sometimes boost you out of bed, you become used to its sound after a while, and need a little more motivation to get you up and at ‘em.
While you could put your alarm clock on the dresser and try to make yourself get up to turn it off, there are other ways to propel you out of bed faster. The Pay to Snooze Alarm Clock will help you to get up, or make you pay up. The only way you can get in those precious extra minutes of sleep is by putting money in the clock. Keep in mind, this is the case for both the snooze and to shut off the alarm clock, but it’s not as if the money is going to disappear once you put it in.
This would be a great way to save up your spare change for a treat down the road. It will also make sure you’re on top of your game in the mornings, as there is some level of prior planning involved for this to work. You will need two AA batteries to get this to function, and it has an LCD display to show you the time. If this sounds like the right morning method of waking up for you, be prepared to pay $42 for this alarm clock.

Knowing how far we’ve come in a workout can help us decide when to push harder or cool down. This is a small part of the reason smart watches are becoming so popular. If we know exactly how our body is functioning, we know where to improve, or what we need to give ourselves a little more slack for.
There are so many different kinds of watches out there that can help you track your workout that it’s getting a tad excessive. As they have been in the watch business for a while, you would think Casio knows what they’re doing. They created the STB-1000, which is a Bluetooth Sports Gear watch that will not only tell you your distance traveled, lap pace, average pace, and heart rate, but you’ll also receive notifications from your phone. It can let you know when you’re getting email, calls, texts, and will also allow you to control your music.
Those who like to use an armband for their phone know the annoyance of accessing it while in mid-stride, so this watch can be your go-between. Other information you’ll be able to see is your speed and the elapsed time, which is often what most of us are concerned about. It doesn’t use rechargeable batteries, which means you won’t need to worry about it turning off for at least two year. This will cost you around $100, and has tons of corresponding apps to go with it.

bēm wireless has a brand new Bluetooth speaker which is small enough for you to wear on your wrist, allowing you to access your smartphone and favorite music in a jiffy regardless of where you are. This speaker band will function as a stylish extension of your smartphone, where it is a safe and quick method when it comes down to answering calls whenever you are driving or walking, making it a guaranteed, must-have item for all of you busy folks out there. Right now, it is available for preorder for a limited time only.
This unique speaker band will be compatible with just about any Bluetooth-enabled device, letting you play your favorite tunes regardless of where you are. There is also the presence of an integrated microphone, where it would enable users to be able to answer their calls in a jiffy using the speaker band alone. This would make it a whole lot more safe compared to fumbling around in your purse or pocket for your smartphone, especially when it comes to a situation where it is better for you (and other road users) to have both of your hands on the wheel. Not only that, this unique speaker band is also compatible with majority of the voice recognition apps out there, giving you up to half a dozen hours of talk time.
The presence of a caller ID function would also enable one to screen one’s calls prior to answering – an extremely crucial feature these days considering how there are just some people (and obviously, numbers) that you would want to avoid. Coming in a design that has a soft-touch wrist band for maximum comfort, you will find the presence of multi-function buttons on the side of the speaker band with play, pause, answer, skip, and reverse capabilities. Charging it up is a snap thanks to the micro-USB port located beneath the speaker. You can pick this bad boy up in black, white, blue, red, gray and green colors for $49.99 a pop.
