Stringy Time


German artist and maker Felix Vorreiter has created this pretty cool clock that uses encoded strings to display a digital readout of the time.  As you can see, the string passes through rollers to form 5 lines which when everything lines up, reads the time.  His clock advances the string in a traditional 1 second … Continued

Wooden Analog Clock


You know Japan isn’t just known for their crazy perversions.  They’re actually insanely good woodworkers too.  Case in point, this crazy complicated mechanical clock that draws out the time on a magnetic board. Look at the intricacies of it: Now here you can see, and listen to it in action: {Withnews|reddit}

Digital Analog


Bernie Rohde makes clocks.  That’s nothing special to be honest, in the last hundred years or so clock making has gone from being a master level skill, to something overlooked and simple.  Sure, the science of time keeping has advanced greatly over the years, they even decided to add a leap second to the day … Continued

Mechanical Clock


There’s something to be said about the beauty of a purely mechanical piece of equipment.  Something that has moving parts, but has no electricity running through it at all.  Something that would work 1,000 years ago, 1,000 years into the future, and anywhere (that gravity is of earth’s constant of 9.8 m/s2).  I’d love to make … Continued

The Clock Clock


I was gonna call this post the Redundant clock, but I decided that that was just copying way too much the other 3 blog posts from where it came. They also failed to write more then a sentence about this lovely piece of art, so that’s where I will change things. For starters look at … Continued

The Scroller Clock


Here’s a live updating clock that is made out of scroll bars.  It’s really quite unique.  And even though Chris thinks it’s weird, I spent at least an hour watching it while I did research on various things for future blog posts.  So now you can watch it and waste hours of your life like … Continued

Interesting Clock Idea


That’s a hanging clock design.  It’s interesting how they came up with the design.  I don’t know if I like Mint Boy though.  It’s alittle over the top if you ask me, I think the original concept better, where it’s just hanging from a wall: That’s something that you can easily add to a wall … Continued

How do you get up in the morning?


Do you wring your alarm clock’s neck to stop it from nagging you to wake up? Dose your pillow inflate, and deflate every 7 seconds until you wake up? Or do you drag your ass out of bed and stand up to turn off the alarm? There’s a bunch of other different interesting types of … Continued

Accurate Artifical Sundial?


The Bulbdial clock is much more accurate sundial which uses 3 revolving light sources to represent the minutes, and hours, and I don’t quite get the 12 hour mark, but hey, whatever.  It looks nice, but come on, a digital alarm clock costs like $10 and will last forever. {MAKE}

Clock of 9s


This clock would probably give me a headache, just alittle.  But, if they made it with 3, which is my favorite number, i think i may love it.
