This cubic timer is pretty cute, but given its fun design quirk (it counts down from whatever number is on top), it's limited to only four different lengths of time. This is why timers don't usually look like dice.
It's pretty simple: Just flip the cube so the length of time you want counted down is the number on top. If you outfit your kitchen with items from the MoMA catalog, this'll fit right in. Just hope that every recipe you make calls for either 3, 10, 30 or 60 minute increments, or wait until the Dungeons and Dragons 20-sided timer comes out. It's available in three colours for $US34 each. [OhGizmo]
