Hey Andy, are any of us remotely close to what this thing might be?

I was wondering if we could get a, "you're warm" to someone's guess, too.....

Is it a remote touch operated switch?
How about a massager or heat applying muscle relaxer?

Okay Andy, you say that it might be useful to people without kids. I'm single, live alone in my own house, female, lots of cats... would it be useful to me?

I wondered if it was a stock indicator. They make lights that change color according to the Dow, etc., but figured I was wrong.

OK. You guys have been dancing around the complete answer with your various clock related guesses so I’m going to call YT the winner as he was first with a close guess.

Here is a link to a video showing it in action. CLICK HERE then go to the bottom of the page and scroll up about three screens to a picture of this item and the video.

I have to say, though it stumped you guys, it's just not a practical item.

My feelings exactly. Also, who wants to wait that long to know the time. It's usually a fraction of a second glance at a time piece.
