Wasabi Fire Alarm Awakens You With A Slight Burning Sensation

In this case the burning sensation is "delicious", not "first degree and could result in your death". And apparently it really works too, although the advertised "time to awaken" period seems a bit too long for my taste.

Effective over an area of 15 metres, the Wasabi alarm can typically wake people up within two-and-a-half minutes. Correct me if I'm wrong, but most traditional fire alarms are loud, and wake you the eff up, well, instantly, right?

Nevertheless, someone believes in this thing. Two years ago this alarm was but a concept. Now it's a $US560 (?!?!) reality. [CNET via Technabob]
