Before LED displays came along, the mechanical flip clock provided an easy way to read the exact time for those who preferred specific numbers to hands on a dial. So a flip clock that instead displays a set of hands is completely and utterly pointless in a wonderful kind of way.
Instead of flipping every minute, this particular clock only updates every 15 minutes so you can never be 100 per cent sure what the exact time is. If you're not worried about being late for a meeting, and don't mind unknowingly leaving work a few minutes early, this is the desk accessory for you. At $US130 it's a little expensive for what is really nothing more than a sight gag -- but can you really put a price tag on frustrating your co-workers? [Hammacher Schlemmer via 7Gadgets]
