Datamatrix QR Code Clock Helps Robots Tell Time

by Range

This clock wasn’t just designed for people to scan with their cellphones, it was actually made for robots, who could easily scan the time with their computer vision. Robots or not, it’s an interesting concept to integrate QR codes into a clock.

The creators call this their “Clock for Robots” and the idea is that the QR code would change dynamically depending on the current time. The Datamatrix Code Clock is quite visible, and allows robots (and humans) to read the time.

You never know when your robot will need to tell the time. Of course, the whole idea seems somewhat odd, because you’d expect robots to know the time thanks to their own computronic brains.

For now, the clock is just a concept, but I wouldn’t mind having one of those around. (TokyoFlash, are you listening?)

    Yes, things like phones have radio, GPS and clock so the clock for robots he is describing has already been outdated several year ago. Congratulation on inventing a pointless device. “sense of place is a wobbly bubbly one” such scientific lingo to patronise technology that’s able to get your position with in centimetres and time to the millisecond.
