Death Star Timer Counts Down To Dinner Instead Of A Planet's Destruction

Death Star Timer Counts Down to Dinner Instead of a Planet's Destruction

Opening your oven to find a tray of burnt brownies isn't quite as devastating as learning that your home planet was destroyed -- but it's pretty close. So instead of wiping out worlds, this Death Star kitchen timer counts down to when it's time to yank something out of the oven.

Simply twisting the Death Star's top hemisphere lets you set a timer from one to 60 minutes, and when time is up the tiny space station will let out an audible ring. Since it's all mechanical, there's unfortunately no electronic version of the Star Wars theme that plays. It's also not available until November, but you can pre-order one for $US24 that includes a rubber base because there's no way this isn't going to roll off your kitchen counters without one.
