Tape Timer

November 28, 2006

 

There’s no need to hunch over and squint at the counter clockwise dials of an old-fashioned timer. Just pull up the measuring tape – marked with minute lines up to 60 – and watch it descend back into the timer, ringing as it reaches its destination. You can see from afar how many minutes are left with the length of the tape, and get an exact idea up close with the precise measurements of this aluminum accent. Imported. No batteries required.

I can do the same thing too with a measuring tape by locking it just a bit and let it coil back… but it really is a fresh idea.
