This planetary orbit clock uses rotating planets to tell the time. Each ring represents an hour, minute, etc, and the only way to tell the time is from looking at it from directly above. It costs $35 and looks really cool, but I'm pretty sure I'd never ever be able to actually figure out what time it was.

More pictures and confusing diagrams after the jump.
