'Wake n Bacon' alarm clock
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 sends a signal to a small speaker to generate the alarm sound. we hacked the clock so the signal is re-routed by a microchip that 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.
