This $36,000 Octopod Clock Is the Best Possible Way to Tell Time

 |  |  |  |  |  December 23, 2018


Got $36,200 burning a hole in your pocket? Then have I got something for you! What you’re looking at is a desk clock which looks like some kind of creepy robotic octopus, and it’s simply awesome.

The meticulously crafted Octopod clock was made by MB&F and L’Epee 1839, and looks like the sort of robotic creature that a supervillain would turn loose on one of his victims. Sitting atop its eight spindly, articulated legs is a glass orb, which contains an intricate clock movement, and can rotate 360 degrees either horizontally or vertically.

While part of me is sad that it doesn’t actually crawl around, I’m also happy that this thing can’t find its way up onto my bed in the middle of the night, and inject its toxins while I’m sleeping.

Just 150 of the Octopod clocks are being made – 50 each with black, blue, or silver legs, and chances are there are enough fantastically-wealthy people out there that they will sell out quickly.
