Self-timing Egg

Leave it to the Britts to come up with this one! I can't wait to see if we get something similair here in time. The self-timing egg basically uses time and heat sensative ink. Pretty darn cool really! I've added the "British Egg Information Service" to the my links on the right. Here is their press release:

31 Jul 2006
Scientists are close to cracking the age old problem of cooking your boiled egg just right…step aside the clock and the running sand granules – here comes the self-timing egg.

Using the latest heat sensitive technology, Lion Quality egg producers tasked boffins to create a foolproof way to guarantee the yolk comes out the way you want it - soft, medium or hard boiled - every time. Carrying a special label, the egg goes into your pan as normal and when it is perfectly cooked the Lion logo appears as if by magic confirming your chosen preference.

“We are still perfecting the technology, but we are very excited at the prospect of sorting a problem that has wound people up at breakfast time for decades,“ said Gilly Beaumont of B&H Colour Change.
