Wake up to the smell of freshly cooked bacon with a new iPhone accessory that has been released by the Oscar Mayer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon.
However, the app and accessory are serious, and the unit plugs into the bottom of an iPhone an emits a puff of bacon fragrance when the iPhone alarm clock goes off.
Customers can't buy the accessory though -- they can only win one via a sweepstakes competition. Also, the competition is only open to people living in the USA.
The concept is not that unusual, as it just a variant on the home fragrance devices, but adding it to a smartphone, then providing bacon fragrance is certainly novel.
The whole thing is actually an advert by Kraft Foods though.
