What’s That Smell?  伴隨芳香的輕柔晨喚 ── 香味鬧鐘

  What is the worst way to start the day? That answer is most likely a loud, beeping alarm clock that sounds like an ambulance siren going off right at your bedside. Since alarm clocks are a necessity, especially with people who sleep deeply, inventors have been trying to find nice ways for alarm clocks to wake people up. Now, scented alarm clocks may just be what the world has been waiting for.
  Instead of an annoying noise, would you like to wake up to the smell of bacon? How about the strong scent of coffee? With SensorWake, people can wake up to the smells of croissants, the ocean, or even money. At the 2014 Google Science Fair, SensorWake was voted one of the top 15 inventions that had the potential to change the world. Guillaume Rolland came up with the idea for a scented alarm clock when he was 17 years old. Rolland has been featured on many big news stations like CNN and ABC, and has a team of talented engineers working for him. SensorWake and all of its flavored capsules should be available at department stores all over the world very soon. Instead of listening to that noisy ringing sound every morning, get a SensorWake because the next generation of alarm clocks is here.


 

  展開一天最糟的方法是什麼?答案很可能就是一個響亮又嗶嗶叫的鬧鐘,聽起來像一個救護車汽笛在你的床邊發出響聲。由於鬧鐘是一項必需品,尤其對那些深眠的人來說更是,發明家一直試著尋找鬧鐘叫醒人的好方式。現在,香味鬧鐘可能就是全球所盼望等待的。
  和惱人的聲響相反,你想要在培根的香味中醒來嗎?濃烈咖啡香如何?有了 SensorWake,人們可以在牛角麵包、海洋、甚至錢的氣味中醒來。在 2014 年 Google 科學展上,SensorWake 被票選為前十五項具有潛力改變世界的發明之一。Guillaume Rolland 十七歲時想出這個香味鬧鐘的點子。Rolland 在很多大新聞電視台,像是 CNN 和 ABC 被專題報導過,他有一個由有才華的工程師組成的團隊為他工作。SensorWake 和它所有的香味膠囊很快地就會在全球的百貨公司販售。不用再聽每天早晨那吵鬧的響聲,用用看 SensorWake,因為下一個世代的鬧鐘就在這裡。
