Hourglass ditches sand for LEDs

Another LED product in search of a use

LiveScience

If you insist on joining the LED parade but don't carry a purse or work in a coal mine , there's still hope.

The inaccurately named "Electric Sand Timer" can be used in place of the traditional hourglass, programmable in increments of 1, 5 and 10 minutes, according to Newlaunches.

Why anyone would need one, of course, is anyone's guess. All we know is that, if a gadget has LEDs, someone will surely buy it .
