Yesterday I started working on the TakeABreak gadget, I thought it would be a wonderful idea
to create a simple gadget that can do what TakeABreak application can.

It took me a couple of good hours to design and program this gadget. Most of the time I just
tried to remember trigonometry, and how to blend it with my gadget.



So what is the TakeABreak gadget?
This gadget is based on the TakeABreak application.

This gadget blinks, to remind you should blink


This gadget has been designed to help you manage your computer hours and breaks
to protect your eyes.

It features a small eye that blinks letting you know you should blink.
By default this gadget uses the 20 20 20 rule, for every 20 minutes you should
take a break of 20 seconds and look at an object 20 feet away (6 meters).
When break time arrives a sound is being played and the eye shuts.
