Designer Andrew Schneider, of the solar-powered bikini fame, also worries that ‘every year each of us lose about 192 hours of valuable visual sight time to blinking’ (not sure how true this is) — which works out to about eight days of blink time.

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 20 October 2012

Who says most apps are useful? This one actually makes us laugh.
