Gamer Timer will help wean you off your crippling DS addiction

Do you or a loved one have an addiction to the Nintendo DS?

Well, if you’re suffering from this ridiculous problem, you might be interested in this equally ridiculous solution: the Health Control Game Timer is a questionable device designed to shut down your DS if you’ve been playing for too long, a milestone that apparently occurs in 30 minute increments. The device also features a distance sensor that flashes a red light should your face get too close to the screen.

We beleive in healthy moderation, even when it comes to our beloved videogames, but find it laughable that they’re peddling this $40 peice of crap the same week the DSi is being released, sans the gameboy advance slot needed to make it work.
