That's Cool, That Makes Sense: A Clock That Uses Hair To Tell Time

February 27, 2017

This is the Lash Clock created by artist Bina Baitel. It uses a ring of hair to tell the time, both hours and minutes. I'd be lying if I said I understood why. I dunno, maybe some people just really like hair? Me? I want as little hair as possible in my apartment, which is impossible with a dog that sheds enough to make another small dog every week (I don't though, I just glue it to my arms and legs and pretend I'm a werewolf) . There are tumbleweeds of dog hair blowing through my living room. "You should get a vacuum." Oh yeah? *removes shoe and sock to reveal missing toes* Vacuums are dangerous. "You lost toes vacuuming?" Well no it was a lawnmower but they're practically cousins.

Keep going for one more shot showing different times, and a video of the clock in action.

Thanks to v, who remembers when it was perfectly acceptable to use the sun to estimate time and show up for things hours late.

    So, how do you tell the difference between the hour indicator and the minute indicator?

  • Ramuran

    The hour indicator seems to be slightly wider.
