People often forgot how long they have been using the computer. It is causing people to suffer from symptoms of eyestrain include irritated eyes, and high intraocular pressure.
This is a design to warn you how much screen time have passed. The product can be placed on your computer screen. You can connect it by wire with your computer, and it will immediately start timing. It has four different colors of glitter lights which are green, yellow, orange and red. They will switch every thirty minutes to remind you how much time has passed. To restart the timer, you just need to unplug the connection wire between the computer and the product.
