May 20 2009Analog Digital Clock Looks Like Digital Clock, Is Made Of Analog Clocks, I'm All Man

Hell yeah I am too. The Clock Clock tells time using a digital-looking display made up of 24 smaller, analog clocks. It is a pretty neat idea and is best viewed from far away otherwise you might burn your retinas out or go crazy like that guy in that movie that was all like AAAAAAAHH!

Created by Swedish designers Humans Since 1982, the Clock Clock installation features 48 electronically-controlled analog clock hands which automatically rotate into the proper positions to form a giant digital display.

I kind of want it. It reminds me a lot of this clock, which is major badassery. Or Colonel Kickass if you're really digging it.

Hit the jump for a bunch more shots and a video of the clock in action.

digital clock needs 48 analog hands to tells time [technabob]

Thanks to Romeo, who doesn't need a device to tell time because he's got a biological clock. ZA-ZA-ZA-ZING!

confusing, but fun to look at

see the time in pictures two and three...

its graggle o clock

pretty cool actually, but it doesn't top this one....

hey looks its 13:2R o'clock

pretty kewl i suppose. to be honest, i'd like to fart on that thing.

...and then my head exploded.

how does it display 8's?

#1, kinda like snake sex.

@5 Natural farts? Or would you charge yourself up with some asparugus, beets, maybe some deviled eggs first?

absolutely, definitely worth mentioning

@9 its a toss up really. natural is cute and smells like the bakery. and i do love a tasty muffin but under water farts seem to win the match.

@5 9 11
okay... i must have missed that episode...

I think they should make a bunch of digital clocks display an array of analog displays displaying a digital clock... put that in your pipe and smoke it...

Cool clock, but its not neon, or zombie. If it was zombie, i'd write about it in my free online zombie serial novel at . Check it out guys, New chapter added daily! If ya like it leave me a comment, or check out some of the sponsors ads (doesn't hurt to look), and if you don't like it, feel free to leave me some (constructive) advice. Thanks!

Why do the hands look so fake and animated?

And ditto, how does it display 8s?

@11 Ahhhh, nothing like a good underwater fart. Especially if you can manage to swim to the bottom of a pool beforehand and watch it bubble up to the top.

Brings a tear of joy to me eye.

♪ Memories, like the corner of my mind ♪

Why do they make these clocks and watches that make telling the time a chore?

Technology is suppose to make us lazier, didn't anyone see WALL-E?

What happened to missing Link... I just searched all over hyrule for him!!!

GW, you got creationist sponsers or something?

"like that guy in that movie that was all like AAAAAAAHH!"

was he referring to a clockwork orange?


This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max got all ready to go out, and then got called down to dinner, where he had to be very careful not to get spaghetti sauce on his clothes. He told his father about the $5.00 raise he got, and his father belittled him, but he didn't care.

I'm always using my cellphone for the correct time! But thanks for the tip anyway!

Useless ... art

Come and join the short and easy game mybrute:

I want one of these :)

@7 I was expecting the first comment to be about number 8. I want to see a number 8 on there.

Great clock - for NAZIs.

trippy... I want!

@26- That's the first thing I thought: "Swastika clock?"

Cool dude..

I'd be confused. I'd read the time on an analog clock and think it was 3 and panic, then remember it's meant to be digital and realise it's only 9 and not panic, and then my brain would go boom.

Seriously it looks like someone still holds a candle for analog, but realises that digital is just more accurate.

It's a good idea .Thank you.
