Wake up and literally smell the coffee, with the new smell based alarm clock, the Sensorwake. Instead of emitting a harsh beep or a merry melody, this revolutionary alarm clock diffuses scents in order to rouse you from your sleep. Insert one of six scent cartridges (ocean, lush jungle, croissant, coffee, chocolate or peppermint) in the slot, program in your wake time and you’ll be awakened with the aroma of your choice. While this should take just two minutes, a back-up beep starts after three minutes in case smells alone don’t do the job.
The Sensorwake olfactory alarm clock hit Kickstarter last summer and will begin shipping to the earliest backers in May 2016. The clock will cost $109 dollars when it hits the market later this year, but the business model’s fruit will come in the sale of scent capsules.
