Timesphere Clock is cool. *Going to order one*

Dan Boland 07 Jul 06

Timesphere Clock is cool, but the ultra-minimalist in me wants the numbers gone too — instead, use a triangle arrow to denote where the 12 is. =D

That clock is cool, but if some jokester swipes your ball, you’re screwed.

I don’t like the second hand on the watch. How do you know which end to go by??

The shower curtain is interesting, but I really prefer the bowed/curved version they have in Holiday Inns these days — it pulls the top of the curtain away from you so it doesn’t touch you when you’re showering. Very handy. I’ve finally seen them in stores recently.

@Mike Morton!: I’m sure packaging or manual explains whether its the end with the circle or not.. either way, what difference does it really make? It’s an analog wrist-watch. If this is your timepiece, the exact seconds are not important to you except for rough timings, in which case simple addition and subtraction relative to wherever you start watching the hand should suffice.

@Mike Morton!: I guess the thin end (without the circle) points at the which second you’re on.

David Benton 10 Jul 06

@David: Funny you should say that. I found it intuitively obvious that the end with the circle was the indicative one.

We could probably figure out who is right, but I rather enjoy having two interpretations and not knowing which is correct.

I think the clock should have three balls: the red on the outside as the second hand, a blue minute hand further in, and a green hour hand near the middle.

Also, I’m with Dan: get rid of the numbers, and just have a dot for the 12.

Colour by numbers wallpapers sounds like a good idea, until you realise you would have to colour in your whole wall!
