This could just be an app for an old smartphone, but it could just as well be a smallish fridge magnet gadget, say 12x12x2 cm.

When setting a timer, the camera can be used to associate a 'what' with the countdown programmed. Take a picture of rice, set 10 minutes. Take a picture of someone on screen and set a timer for an online chat. Take a picture of the cat and set a daily reminder that you have a cat.

When the timer rings the picture is shown.

       //reminder that you have a cat//
Generally, a cat will remind you of it's existence. Every day at breakfast time. Even when it's the weekend and you would prefer to sleep in...
Other than that, this is a good idea! Now that it's public domain, an app will be forthcoming (not from me; from some boffin who does that sort of thing...).

       Before the Borg finds this, how about a camera usable by paw, so the cat can get you with bed hair - quid pro quo etc
