This Clock Draws the Time Using Sequins

This Clock Draws the Time Using Sequins
There are lots of different ways to tell the time. You can use an old school analog clock with hands, a segmented digital display, or even a sundial. But I can say with 100% certainty that this is the first clock I’ve ever seen that tells time with sequins. Architect and tinkerer Ekaggrat Singh Kalsi put together the Sequino, a truly unique timepiece that takes advantage of the bi-colored nature of some sequins, flipping them from one side to the other to reveal the current time.

Automatic Visual Censorship Tech is Black Mirror IRL
Did you ever see the Black Mirror episode called “Arkangel?” Basically, it tells the story of an overly-cautious mother who has a chip implanted in her daughter’s brain so she can track her every movement.

Until I have a sentry of robots or Mark Rober’s Glitter Bomb 2.0 guarding my mailbox, my big fear this time of year is leaving the house and missing a package delivery. I’m not paranoid, but I am an Amazon junkie, and my neighbors know from personal experience that front porch thefts are on the rise.

Sony SRS-WS1 Wearable Speaker Review: Personal Audio without Headphones
Most audio output devices fall into one of two categories: headphones for personal listening, and loudspeakers for group listening. But Sony’s new device falls somewhere between the two – a speaker you can wear. The SRS-WS1 is designed for those times that you want the sound quality and volume of a loudspeakers, but don’t want to wake the whole house. Rather than pressing up against your ears or sitting inside of them, the SRS-WS1 sits around your neck and rests on your shoulders, using a unique acoustic design to channel audio to your ears.

FLUX Beamo Review: An Easy and Compact CO2 Laser Cutter/Engraver
Ever since I saw a CO2 laser cutter in action at a maker space I visited, I always wanted to have one for my own workshop.

This LED Wall Clock Is Accurate to 1/100th of a Second
While there are plenty of clocks and watches out there which don’t even have a second hand, I prefer to know the time with at least one second of precision. But that certainly wasn’t good enough for one engineer, who decided he needed decidedly more confidence that he knew the EXACT time. What you’re looking at here is what Mixtela claims is the “most precise and accurate wall clock you can get.”
