These are interesting clocks I have open right now.
"Each figure has self-contained power supply and independent control, it can be fixed to any surface autonomously. A light sensor will switch the clock to an invert mode: the figures are white in the dark time of day and black at daytime." I will buy this clock the second it is mass-produced. [via Swiss Miss]
"This is a planning clock for office or studio. The Trace of Time clock not only tells the time but provides a place for users to make notes: The face of the clock is made of glass and stainless steel. Messages are erased by means of the integrated eraser. User can control speed as well for on day, one week even one month according to there schedule." Clever. [via David]
