Over at ThinkGeek I saw a nifty clock, the TIX LED Clock The idea is the time is displayed with the number of lights representing each digits.
I played with this idea a bit, and decided it would be cool to on the web, so turning to the Processing Language I had dabbled in once before, I cobbled together my own version. Each of the digits is coloured differently, and they slowly cycle through the spectrum. To read the clock, just count the number of lit dots at any time in each area. For example, if there are 1,5,2 and 8 lit elements (from left to right) the time is 15:28, or 3:28pm. This is a the java applet output from Processing... I believe it should display your local clock's time...
Some times (at night time GMT +2) my server is down and you can't look at this clock. Sorry, I like to sleep in silent
Size, color and style of a clock can be changed with CSS.
