Detailed information

The iBeam Optical Timepiece is an analogue watch with a handy 5x magnifying glass and built-in LED light.  It was invented by a gentleman who got tired of borrowing his wife's reading glasses in dimly lit restaurants (and who's too vain to carry his own glasses).

The light comes on with the press of a button, and stays on automatically, but goes off after 30 seconds by itself.

Aquarium Screensaver

From time to time, Leo's aquarium screensaver will come on during the recording and one can hear the sound of bubbles on the show.

Chorks ?

Someone invented the chopsticks-forks.  Listen to what Leo thinks of them.  Here are some examples of this idea from the web, sometimes called chorks.  In due course, Leo is desperate enough on a Turn-The-Tables-Tuesday to cover the spork in the infamous Episode 182.
