Magnetic Tape Clock: Timeless and Attractive

by Lambert Varias

Etsy seller/green craftster pixelthis uses recycled parts to make timepieces. While he mostly uses discarded hard disk drives, this gem of a clock features a 7″ magnetic tape reel, giving it a simple yet classy look. As pixelthis says, it’s a perfect gift for “that geek or audiophile you know who is so hard to shop for”, especially since magnetic tapes have been around for at least 75 years, and although they’re being phased out in favor of digital systems magnetic tapes are still known for their high quality and low cost. So this is one timeless timekeeper.

Like real magnetic tape, the magnetic tape reel clock is also cheap: you can get it for only $28 (USD) at pixelthis’ Etsy shop. The clock hands are also available in black; if you want him to swap the hands with the ones he uses on his other clocks, just let him know and he’ll gladly customize your order. He’s also a junk junkie and is willing to trade his creations for mechanical or electronic parts, especially Apple ones. I bet he gets a buttload of Mighty Mice.
