Awaglass Soap Bubble Timer
Here at last to keep track of your 60-second increments of time: soapy water. Fill the Awaglass bubble timer with H2O and dish soap, shake it up, and marvel at the brilliant mind of a Japanese dude with so much time on his hands that he was able to reinvent a decorative desktop trinket to tell him exactly how much time he had on his hands.
Artist Norihiko Terayama first replaced the sand in this handblown hourglass with soap liquid to "defy the laws of space, time, and physics and make it appear to flow in reverse." Now you too can enjoy this distraction/tool for teaching your kids exactly what you mean when you say, "Hold on a minute!" with your own little Awaglass. Happy liquid time-tracking!
