Smells are powerful things. Particularly those of pubescent feet and dirty farts. But freshly baked croissants, brewing coffee, and cut grass can leave a decent impact too. Decent and, according to SensorWake, waaaaay more pleasant than a blaring alarm. That's why this digital alarm clock is making the move to lure you out of your night's slumber (and lure you into pledging for one on Kickstarter) with scent rather than sound.

Conceived and developed by French teenager Guillaume Rolland, the SensorWake received recognition as one of the top 15 inventions "that can change the world" at the 2014 Google Science Fair. Set this alarm clock just like you would your coffee maker, and when rise 'n' shine time comes, it will emit strong wafts of sweet smells to wake you with olfactory decadence rather than piercing wails or, worse, the "I Got You Babe" refrain Bill Murray had to wake to for months on end in Groundhog Day.

But! But! you say, is a smell really enough to drag my ass out of dreamland? According to SensorWake, its patented technology releases just the right scent dosage through a diffusion system to wake 99 out of the 100 people they tested in under 2 minutes. And, the company continues, for the "1% with a stuffy nose" SensorWake also comes with a backup audio alarm that will sound after 3 minutes if you're still not awake.

SensorWake kickoff scents will include: Espresso; Hot Croissant; Peach; Strawberry; Tea Tree; Chocolate; Seaside; Lush Jungle; Stimulating Ginger; Invigorating Peppermint; Dollar; and Ebony Luxury. Each capsule has enough scent to wake you 60 times.

Pledge for your SensorWake on Kickstarter through June 30, 2015.
