Most card club, at-home, and satellite poker tournaments face the same challenge: how to conveniently time blind changes (the minimum required bet for a specific period of play).
For years, these players have used various methods to mark the time between required minimum bet increases (blinds). These have ranged from the obvious (kitchen, stovetop and microwave timers) to the absurd (old-fashioned buzzer clocks and cell phone alarms).
