I recently found out about SensorWake, a Kickstarter-funded company that invented a gentle way of waking you up.

What motivates you to get up in the morning? Whether its a hot cup of coffee or a croissant, you don’t have to wake up to a sudden scream of an alarm clock, not anymore! There is a new alarm clock that claims to be able to arouse you from your sleep by simply wafting invigorating scents around your bedroom.

Like regular alarm clocks, you can set the timer of the clock for the time you would want to get up in the morning. With scents including coffee, candy, chocolate and croissants, the scent you have selected will be emitted once the chosen time has come. Within two minutes of reaching the time, you should be fully aroused with the scent.

In a test that was carried out to prove the functionality of the SensorWake, 100 people were awaken in less than 2 minutes 99% of the time. To ensure that you don’t doze away while you should be heading to an important meeting, there is also an audio alarm that will go off once three minutes have passed.

A single capsule of a scent cartridge is said to be able to wake you up 60 times. Available scents are seaside, ginger, hot croissant, and even money.The scent cartridges are fragranced by the Swiss fragrance manufacturer Givaudan.

Great innovations are happening here!!! Yours, Fran
