Sensorawake, a Paris-based tech company, has invented an alarm clock that gently wakes you from your sleep by engaging your senses of sight, hearing and smell.
“The first minute entices your sense of smell with nine different types of scents, such as pine forest, rose garden, seaside, chocolate factory, orange juice, cappuccino, and much more,” reports Mashable.
You might be thinking, “Who in the world would want such a random device?”
Enough people to completely fund the device’s Kickstarter in just 3 hours.
The clock wakes you in a three-step process that begins with smells in the first phase as listed above. The second minute, the clock emits some kind of light. In the third phase, the clock plays “pleasant melodies.”
It’s the perfect gift for someone who wants to feel like their house is haunted.
