Cigarette-mimicking Timer

A timer mimicks cigarette burning to time a virtual "smoke break"

For Non-smokers who envy the smokers' innumerable "smoke breaks" at work: a timer shaped as a cigarette can be started by pressing a button. It mimicks the advance of the fire towards the butt, and beeps when the cigarette would be finished: Time to go back to the office. (A "virtual smoke break" site exists, but who wants to bring the PC outside? Perhaps a cellular adaptation can help...)

       I agree to assume the burden of one of [Edie's] "brilliant" responses. I was just about to say the same.

       What's needed is a "vape" machine that releases a trail of vapour from the far end, but when sucked on just admits plain air. Thus the user can pretend to be smoking, but actually isn't.
