LaserMad shows off a sweet retro-modern clock that uses high voltage vintage Nixie tubes which float in the air using electromagnets, get their power using a copper induction coil, and transmit the time to the digits using infrared light. Available in kit form or fully-assembled.
Designer Axel Schindlbeck’s desk and wall timepiece is designed to help improve your math skills. Rather than tell time in simple hours and minutes, it displays equations you must solve instead. Offers four different difficulty levels as your skills improve.
This unique wall or table clock uses the power of magnetic levitation to float its hour hand (er, hour sphere) off its surface, creating a dramatic and minimal display as it casts a shadow on the wooden surface beneath. Want the exact time? An LED matrix display hides beneath the wood.
Instead of a screen or hands, this Swiss-made digital clock tells the time by embossing the digits on its rubber surface, which turns flat once again in a few seconds. You can make the numbers appear every 30s or whenever the clock detects noise.
A modern take on the old 1970s mechanical flip-dial alarm clocks. The animated LCD face mimics the flip design, but eliminates mechanical issues and the ticking sound which could keep light sleepers awake. It’s also got a super loud alarm that’s sure to wake you up.
Artist Felix Vorreiter’s unusual timepiece uses a single, long piece of string that feed through a series of pulleys. The rope is marked with dots which align to display the current time. The current clock only has 120 minutes of string, as it would take about 4000ft to cover a full day.
