Every parent can probably remember a time when they tried to pry their little darling angels from the clutches of some favorite game or show, only to be made to feel like the bad guy just for doing the parenting thing. The Digital Innovations Universal Video Game Timer lets technology be the bad guy, saving you from many sleepless nights of remembering little Johnny clinging desperately to the computer as you dragged him towards his bed. Besides, children need to learn that technology can be used for evil as well as good.
Just install the timer onto your video game system, TV, computer, or other electronic device, set the time allowed for play time, and prepare for the screams when the time automatically shuts the power off to the device when the pre-selected time is reached. You can even be nice and set either a 10-minute or 1-minute warning so games in progress can be saved before the entertainment blackout occurs.
