    Link: Wasabi To Wake Up The Deaf? - Leave it to Japanese researchers to have the strong smell of wasabi used as a smoke alarm for deaf people. Genius!

    he says sushi like slushy without the "L"


    and wouldnt the smell of smoke wake you up with the same results of the wasabi?

    How about some regular sprinklers? It would wake them up, and kill the fire. It`s better than being seasoned with wasabi scent before burning in the fire.

    Shoyz, if you`re like me and fall asleep as you have a stick of incense burning, then you get used to the smoky smell.

    The horseradish/wasabi smell would be effective, I think...

    Oh, and not all people wake up with sprinklers on their faces...

    "Oh, and not all people wake up with sprinklers on their faces... "
    But, it does get rid of the fire and also, what if the person has a cold and can`t smell anything?

    Or, they could just wake up how many deaf people do; flashing lights.
    Oh, and by the way, I was trying to figure out what he was saying in sign language (because I am learning ASL) and then I remembered "Different countries have different sign languages!" *Facepalm*

    risingflames I hope you`re kidding. I mean really.

    Anyways, I think there`d be an application for this in alarm clocks. It`d be extreme but some people, like myself, need an extreme alarm clock.

    That`s a really cool idea. Nice.

    Also, I first read "to wake up the dead" ... that kinda confused me.

    > I don`t clean the oven for a couple months

    When I was sharing a flat years ago we lived in the flat for 3 years and when we came to move out we gave the whole place a cleanout first, we found a shrunken green chicken in the oven. Neither of us had ever used the oven in the whole time we were there so it must have been from the tenants before us. One of the downsides of having a takeaway shop over the road I guess :-)

    Shrunken.. what? Why would it turn green? WHAT!?

    D:

    I think sprinklers would be a better idea too.

    But if the alarm ever went off, it would probably kill their appetite for anything with horseradish or wasabi in it ever again. Every time you ate it you would think of a fire!

    Uh... That`d be good if it would wake people up sooner... I mean, my dad`s mostly deaf, he doesn`t hear the smoke alarms and things at all, but when his house burned down, within 2 minutes of the flame igniting, it had spread to most of the house.

    By the time it would have reached his room to wake him up, he probably would have been unconscious from smoke inhalation.
