Great Science guy gift

This was a gift for my husband. Being a Patent Attorney, he likes to display different & interesting "scientific" type items on his desk. This was a great additon to his collection. It also helps him to remind him to stop and take a break once in awhile.

Love concept but it is a minute not an hourglass

3

I bought this for work time/breaks for computer work which is supposed to help w productivity. Love the item, wish it were and HOUR not a minute glass. Returned since although a fun concept, more of a toy or science concept demo item. Thought it would be a nice alternative to a timer on a cell phone.
