Time Cube Tells Time With Triangles
December 26th, 2007
For just a few brief moments each day, this clock looks like an ordinary cube, but most of the time it transforms to form star-like geometric patterns.
The Time Cube carves off one corner of its 6-sided box to form a series of layered triangles which rotate to tell the current time. The largest triangle displays hours, while the medium-sized one tells minutes, and the small spinning triangle on top acts as a second hand.
At first glance, I thought it might be confusing to read, but if you just think about the triangles like the hands on a regular clock, it’s not too difficult to get the hang of it.
The Time Cube clock is available now from gadget importer Chinavasion for about $12 USD.
