This Clock's Minute Hand Rings Its Own Hourly Chime

To sound off the top of each hour, Alessandro Zambelli’s DINN clock does’t use a complex geared mechanism like a grandfather clock, or even simple electronics like your digital watch.

Coffee-Brewing Clock Wakes You Up... To Wake You Up

Need an alarm clock? You’re spoilt for choice, depending on how eager you are to chase it around the bedroom.

These Incredible Clocks Were Built By A Single Designer Over 35 Years

In the 1980s, as giant technology companies competed to create electronics that arrived in the most compact, grey boxes possible, a young designer named Daniel Weil was doing the exact opposite: Eviscerating the electronic guts of gadgets, from radios to clocks, exposing them to the consumer the most elegant way imaginable. And 35 years later, he’s still at it.

Watch Time Evaporate With A Clock That Paints The Hours In Water

It’s probably related to our limited existence on this planet, but mankind has an unmistakable obsession with time. How else would you explain all the energy we put into building countless clocks designed to tick away the seconds, from a simple Timex watch, to this wonderful WaterColorBot that paints every passing minute?


Is A Clock With The Hours Stacked Vertically Really Easier To Read?

Those of us raised with the English language were taught to read sentences in a straight line. But then when it came time to decipher clocks, we were expected to suddenly be able to read in a circle. It’s no wonder we’ve all switched to digital displays, and why designers Boaz Cohen and Sayaka Yamamoto were inspired to re-think how an analogue clock displays the hours.

Skip The Nail Holes In Your Wall With This Sticker Clock
