smiler timer / pen

smiler timer
smiler timer

This is a specially designed pen to be used in exams. The blade-shaped tail of this pen can be pulled out to a distance set according to the required time; then after releasing, the tail shall retract to the pen tube slowly over time, so as to achieve the timing function. When timing is done, it will resume to the original state. There are four scales available, i.e., 60min, 40min, 20min and 0min, and the user may set the timing flexibly according to the exam time or personal need. Each scale is marked with a different color to give the user a more visual alert of time urgency and help him/her arrange time better.
