An Idea Whose Time Has - Apparently- Come

My father used to joke that when my mother died, he would have her cremated remains made into an egg timer, and that would be the first time she would ever help him to make breakfast.  This was just a joke in 1970, but today.. well, just watch the video below.  I can almost smell the eggs cooking!

Brilliant!! Now that is an innovative use of technology - to improve such a classic momenti mori as the hour glass in this way!

But I don't know how popular it will be - it is perhaps all too effective at reminding of one's own limited time.
