Feb 23 2007Verbarius clock prints time with words

verbarius.jpg

Verbarius is the first clock in the world that gives the time like a person, so instead of using numbers it prints out something like forty-five minutes past four, or fifteen minutes to five, or four forty-five, or a quarter to five. Five languages are available out of the box but you can upload any other language using a PC.

This is a cool idea, but it seems way harder to read forty-five minutes past four than it is to read 4:45. Instead of glancing at the time you actually have to read and interpret it. Which is extra hard for me because I never learned how to read. Or spel. Or rite wurds.
