Enjoy waking up to the smell of freshly cooked bacon? There's an app for that.

Oscar Mayer wants to wake you up with the smell of bacon. But be warned bacon lovers, the bacon won't be there if you jump out of bed and rush to the kitchen.

Here comes the bacon alarm.

But if you enjoy the smell (and the tease), Wake Up And Smell The Bacon was introduced Wednesday.

The smell alarm is a device that, once paired with your iPhone and companion app, will wake you up with the sizzling sound of bacon and a perfume of pork that the device puffs out.

But then what? Carnivores could awaken grumpy that no bacon is in place for them.

Sad? Perhaps. Innovative? You bet!

It’s the first smell-emitting device for the iPhone.

But don’t rush out to the Apple Store or your local grocer, looking for the device. It’s not available for just anyone.

To get your meat-loving hands on the contraption, you have to enter a contest on Oscar Mayer’s website, which notes that limited quantities of the device are available.

But why would someone torture themselves with just the smell and nothing to pig out on? I’m not sure, but the technology is there for folks who want the latest and greatest gadget.
