Unique clock available as a kit or ready made

We've developed this clock over three years to make it as stunning as it is today. Version 5 gives you our cleanest, crispest edition yet. We include your choice of cable cloth colour, frame colour, and built in to each is the ability to change light colour at the push of a button. We look forward to enjoying our work.

Version 5 now comes with:

  • Clean crisp letters giving you a unique time piece for your desk
  • Two frame options (White/Black) to match your decor
  • Six user selectable light colours (Red, Blue, Green, Purple, Teal, Pink) at the push of a button
  • Braided cloth USB power cable in SIX colour choices

This is a unique clock that displays the time elegantly in words instead of numbers! With the push of a button the colour of light will change; Red, Blue, Green, Purple, Teal, Pink. The kit includes everything needed to put it together bar the frame which is designed to be compatible with one readily available at Ikea.

Why did you make it?

We wanted to make something unique and that got a second look by a passer by. This clock certainly has achieved that goal. It is also made to be affordable and something that can be built at home.

What makes it special?

Multiple iterations, each more refined all to arrive at this one very one. Each letter is addressable, multiple colours are programmed in, and it is all arranged to maximise the ease of putting it together.

Additionally the code and hardware is open source so you have the ability to re-program the clock and customise it just how you want. If you like that kind of thing ;-)
