Wasabi Smoke Alarm

Fire alarms for the deaf typically involve strobe lights or vibration (such as a vibrating bed or pillow to wake a sleeper). But over in Japan, a few years back, researchers invented an alarm that sprayed the smell of Wasabi into the air. Tests revealed it could wake sleepers within two minutes.

The researchers also tested the smells of banana, coconut milk, and tea tree oil, but they found the smell of wasabi worked best.

Oh boy, I remember the first time I came across wasabi. Growing up in Central Valley of California I was used to three alarm Mexican cuisine. I was told it was pretty spicy hot but slathered it on and instantly regretted it.

Like Brylcreem, a little dab will do ya.
