Nobody likes the sound of their alarm clock in the morning, and there’s really no good way to be woken up from a comforting slumber, but a company wants to try and change that – by waking you up with your favourite smells!
The SensorWake Trio contains more than 10 scents, including that of freshly brewed coffee, warm cookies, orange juice, for the smell of freshly squeezed oranges, and even the seaside.
Then, one minute later, a pattern of lights are triggered on its face, before finally, after another minute, a gentle melody starts just in case the wafting smell hasn't already woken you up.
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem you can customise the audio that wakes you up, so you have to choose from one of five pre-set melodies that are all one step beyond your generic MIDI phone alarm.
Each individual smell capsule offers 30 wake-up calls, and you can easily change capsules to switch your morning aromas from day to day.
The SensorWake Trio is running a kick-off campaign, which smashed its initial target within hours of launching.
For R987,50 you can pick up a device with two capsules and for R1 237,50 one with 12 capsules.
