The coolest timer gadget 15:42 on Wednesday

This cool timer came from IKEA with a hefty price of 2.50 euros. It has a magnet to stick it on your fridge or it can stand freely on its edge. The cool thing is, it changes from a clock to an egg timer (countdown) to a timing clock (count up) to a thermometer simply by rotating the thing.

Video is shot with my Nokia N90, which delivers smooth video again after I finally got it updated. More on that later…

In the video I have pre-set the egg timer time to five seconds. You can set this to any number of minutes or seconds using the buttons on the back of the device.

Yes, it’s a bit on the ugly side, but I guess you don’t get a Sony OLED design for 2.50.
