    This is the Geek Nerd Clock available from Etsy seller LetterThings ($23). The numbers have been replaced with geeky references to the number that should be there. They blew the opportunity to use a reference to Battlestar Galactica's Number Six for 6 o'clock though. Also, 1... / Continue →

    This is the $36,000 robotic desk clock available from MB&F. The piece is limited to 99 pieces, or $3,560,000 in gross profit provided they sell them all. For reference, that is more than I would make in my entire life if I lived to be 800. Did I mention it just tells time? ... / Continue →

    This is a clock made entirely out of LEGO/Technic pieces and two Mindstorms NXT micro-computers. Impressive, but I once made a clock out of nothing but the sun and a stick. Just kidding, that was a forest fire, but still. Mr. Andersson...calls his clock the Time Twister. I... / Continue →
