Trade in your timer for the ultimate presentation remote. Designed
to perform multiple functions effortlessly, the Logitech Cordless 2.4

laser pointer, and vibration to let you know when to wrap it up. When you
have 5 minutes left, the Presenter will vibrate once. Then, when your time is
up, it will vibrate for 10 seconds. The only missing feature is a strong shock for
