Lifetimer for your lifetime memories
How much additional functionality can you include in a clock other than its most elementary features of time and alarm? Looks like quite a few other people have pondered over this question already. So we now have clocks which talk, scream and even counsel.
Along comes another one for those people obsessed with count-downs - the LifeTimer. 3 more months to your birthday, 5 since you last had a date, and probably a 100 more for you to contribute anything remotely significant to mankind in this lifetime - fascinated with such time-stamps? Then just to help you along, the Lifetimer is designed to hold all such important events of your life. Punch in the events of the past or future into the timer and you can retrieve the number of minutes, hours and seconds left before (or passed since) the event. The clock has buttons on its face which you press to retrieve a particular count-down (or count-up). Its somewhat cute-looking round LCD screen reminds me of the dialing pads which were so prominent on the finger-based dialing telephones of the 80s. Apart from this, the Lifetimer includes the other normal features of date, time and alarm.
I personally think the Lifetimer is too pricey for the feature it peddles. If you would like to check it out anyway, it's available online at around $27.
