Video game timers of one sort or another are hardly anything new, but timers for handheld game consoles are a considerably rarer sight, especially ones as elaborate as this so-called Health Control Game Timer for the Nintendo DS. Apparently not content with simply shutting off the handheld after a predetermined period of time, this one also packs a built-in proximity sensor that'll set off an alarm if you're holding the DS too close to your face. Of course, considering that the device can simply be yanked from the DS at any time, this isn't exactly the most effective tool for parents looking to curb their kids' gaming habits but, if you lack a little self control yourself, you can grab one of these now for ¥ 3,990, or just about $40.
