    Oh my god. What you just invented is called an hourglass. It’s been around for hundreds of years. At least I won’t have to go through the annoyance of having to look at the clock in the lower right hand corner of the screen.

  2. Very interesting, but I don’t see how this is an improvement over the traditional hourglass.

    Thanks for the comments. The biggest difference is that you can customize the material inside the glass from the desktop.
