"Time is the fire in which we burn." - Delmore Schwartz

I love hourglasses. I'm actually using a 15 minute one right now to help me focus on writing this post. There's something about the falling sand that is quite motivating. However, there are some obvious problems with hourglasses. They're are locked into their timings and if you need to reset one, you're going to need to wait awhile. All of these problems are solved with this cool new Tempo Hourglass.

This is the world's first adjustable time hourglass that can be set to 5 minutes, 15 minutes, or 25 minutes (no hour!?) and has a built-in quick reset button to release all the sand at once. It's perfect for setting quick timers on tasks like writing amazing posts like this on, reading, meditating, relaxing, working out, cooking, and more. Check out the video below to see it in action.
