Continue Time

So how do you convince people to keep buying wall clocks when nearly every single gadget they carry can show them the time? Well one way is to turn it into a mesmerizing kinetic sculpture like the Continue Time clock created by Sander Mulder.

The hour hand remains connected to the ‘center’ of the clock face, but the minute hand extends from the end of the hour hand while the second hand extends from the end of the minute hand.

Getting out of bed in the morning is one of my hates. Rather then wake up I’d rather just ignore the alarm clock by leaning over to put it on snooze. The Danger Bomb Clock might change this bad habit though as it requires you to defuse a bomb every morning.
