My Geeky Desires - Clocks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Today I wanna show you a few clocks I found while searching for Xmas pressies. The problem with me and clocks is that I hate these ticking thingies cuz they just won't let me sleep. This steady tick-tock makes me crazy. I'm always lying there and wait for the next tick or tock. Drives me insane. So I browsed around and found some cute things. Ok some also make the annoying sound but I love them nonetheless.



 

 

 




First one is a dream clock for every booklover: The book clock. I would so buy this  one if I had some space in my bookshelves. But the way it is at the moment I need every free space I can get for books. I found this one here. The price is really ok and would look so great in a bookshelf. 




  
The next one is really geeky and I always planned to buy this one for BF. The Binary Clock is more like art in my eyes and not easy to read if you don't speak binary. LOL


OK, I will explain it. Each vertical column stands for one number on a digital clock. The horizontal lines represent the binary values( from bottom to top: 1 2 4 8). You just have to add the illuminated values in each vertical line up to get the number. Take a look at the pic, I think it explains it really good. Found this clock on 1 of my favorite sites "Think Geek" here.


 

 



The third one is a bit like the binary clock but way easier to read. The Tix Clock is again divided in 4 separated fields. This time you just have to count the illuminated squares to get the digit. Found this one on Think Geek too. You can take a look here.





Oh I know this week is really geeky but what do you think?

LMAO i already had a hard time reading the time on a NORMAL clock i think i would always be late if i had a binary clock lol they are pretty funny though

See I LOVE the Tick-tock of a clock! I find it very relaxing...unless i can't sleep, then it only reminds me that i'm still freaking awake! lol
The book clock is so cool, i love the black one. Of course i have no room for such a clock but it's wicked.
lol i'm still trying to read the time on the Binary clocks

@pattepoilue LOL I love the binary one. When I finally, after so much thinking, understood how it works I now want one for myself. But how many clocks does one person need?LOL

I am getting so greedy because of all these geeky gadgets, last time I wanted a shiny blim blim USB stick, now I want a bookclock!!

Those binary clocks made my brain hurt but I think I figured them out, still I think the book clock wins hands down!! I definitely want one!

I lurv the first binary clock. :) It good to exercise the brain. Studies have proven that when you do, you have a less chance of developing Dementia.

But I also like the book clock. Because it's books! I want both. Yep. Both. :)

I'm late voting on this one, but I think that binary clock rocks!

The book clock is cool, but it takes up too much space needed for actual books. ;D
