Magnetic Hourglass – keep time in the most dramatic way possible

Do you ever find yourself needing to track the passing of sixty seconds in a dramatic yet silent way? Sure you can just use your phone’s clock feature but although silent, it lacks the drama. The Magnetic Hourglass has all the drama and creates a cool effect as the seconds tick by.

This glass is filled with ferrous sand and the base, I would assume, hides a magnet. The end result is that it forms a little stalagmite as the timer runs out which is fairly interesting as a desk toy. As the minute passes, new (stalagmite) shapes are formed.

Be careful with this though! As cool as it is, it is made of glass and a few customers have reported that they broke theirs quite easily. So maybe place it gently as you turn it? I know slamming it is far more dramatic but you want it to last. The Magnetic Hourglass is $22.50.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
