This kind of reminds me of the Weasley clock that was in Harry Potter, but there’s actually more to it than just the time. It can actually show you what the weather is like outside.
I love how this display is retro and analog.
I’ve seen a couple of math clocks and watches before, but this geeky pocket watch must be the all-time champ; a product that caters to a subset of a subset of people.
You can order the geek pocket watch at Uncommon Goods for $85 – ($0 x $1) + $32 -$32 (USD).
Leiji Matsumoto is known in many circles as one of the founding fathers of anime and manga, creating science fiction classics like Space Battleship Yamoto and Galaxy Express 999. Now his unique futuristic style has found a home in an unlikely host – this dramatic watch.
The bold and badass Leiji Meter watch from Japan’s Seahope and ZERO Goods Universe will definitely draw stares when you wear it to your next business meeting.
When I first saw this clock design, I was scratching my head wondering why you’d want a clock that doesn’t keep time at all. After all, who wants a clock that you have to manually change the time on every time the minute changes?
If you’re in the market for a new digital watch and want something a little out of the ordinary, you might want to check out the latest timepiece from Nooka – the ZAZ. Now, I’m not a big fan of the name, which sounds like some sort of tacky accessory store from the 1980s, but the watch’s cool modern style belies its rather silly name.
The ZAZ tells time using a minimal liquid-crystal display that that indicates the hours, minutes and seconds using stacks of dots and dashes.
There are certainly a ton of different ways to tell time, but this retro-modern digital clock is definitely one of the cooler designs I’ve seen in a while.
The Ice Tube clock ($70 USD) gets its brilliant blue display thanks to an old-school Russian-issued VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) tube.
At first glance, this looks like any ordinary old wall clock. But take another look, and you’ll see that there’s nothing ordinary about the way that it works.
You see, the hour markers around the perimeter of designer J.P.Meulendijks‘
This offbeat watch design is merely a concept at this point, but I actually kind of like the idea. The Alessi Laser Shot watch is supposed to project the current time on your wrist using (frickin’) laser beams.
Designer Andy Kurovets envisioned this über-modern watch concept that uses a modulated laser scanner to projects the time onto the surface of your wrist.
This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen a clock fabricated from an old hard drive. But this is by far the most amazing, dramatic hard drive clock you’ll see today. Or any day for that matter.
Polish modder mb1988 built this hard drive clock uses the old persistence-of-vision (POV) illusion, which display phantom “hands” on the face of the spinning drive platter.
I love these fun and functional clocks modeled to look like giant computer keys.
Each clock measures in at about 10-inches square, making it about 175 times larger than a regular computer key. While you won’t be able to spell out “CTRL-ALT-DEL” if you hang three of these on the wall, you could buy all four and spell out “CTRL-ALT-ESC-ENTER”, which I believe makes flames shoot out of PCs running Windows XP or Vista – so don’t try this at home.
The QLOCKTWO is a gorgeous modern timepiece uses letters, not numbers to tell you the current time.
Designed by Biegert & Funk, the QLOCKTWO displays text that describes the current time using statements like “IT IS NINE O’CLOCK” or “IT IS FIVE PAST TWO”.
Clockman is a little cube-dude that’s designed to wake you up and get you going for the day. Sure, he might annoy the crap out of you in the process, but that’s part of the fun.
Designed by Japan’s Takara Tomy, Clockman jars you awake each morning with a variety of chatty statements, along with some goofy animated facial expressions.
These modern digital watches don’t use LED or LCD screens. Instead, they use E-Ink screens to tell the time.
Phosphor’s E-Ink watches have a bold modern design, and feature highly readable electrostatic displays.
The Phosphor DH01, DH02 and DH03 all feature a display that combines a dramatic modern numeric display for minutes, along with a simulated analog dial for the current hour.
Numbers. Who need’s em? Well, except for all that math stuff. But when it comes to something like telling time, why should we be restricted to the same ol’ boring clockfaces? With the Word Clock, you can leave all that behind.
You know what else you don’t get with this word clock?
