Blue Cheese / alarm clock

Blue Cheese

Combined the alarm clock with human’s sense of human’s sense of smell, the user can use different kind of special ethereal oil on their different purpose. The steamer machine will start steaming the ethereal oil before the time user had set. This process will make sure the user would wake up on time. A stronger smell will be available on Monday morning if users have a significant appointment in that case. Other smells which make users feel hungry will certainly wake them up to have brunch in the beautiful Sunday morning. Eventually, stimulation through smell definitely wakes users up more effectively than conventional bell ring does.
