Taking an exam requires students to keep an eye on the time to ensure optimal completion, so the conceptual 'Timer Cap' pen has been created as an alternative to looking up at a clock.
Designed as both a pen and a pencil cap, the device works by being pulled out to the amount of time allotted and indicating how much is left using shaded sections with numbers. This eliminates the need for test takers to constantly look up to check the time and keep the focus on total completion.
The 'Timer Cap' pen has been designed by Jade Jinwon Heo who explained that, "You can manage the exam time and practice taking the exam thoroughly, since you can control time in the timer of Timer Cap, using the spring which is pushed into again, when you pull it upwards manually. Besides, the color of the timer changes every twenty minutes so you can check the time left, visually."
