Although methinks there is way too much philosophy attached to a clock, it still does not deter me from wanting one. Real bad. Only drawback I guess is finding a horizontal wall for it to hang from. By Studio Toer.

Shaped-by-time” is a clock that shapes itself by the passage of time. Because it’s looking for the most efficient way to move itself through the matter it will create an organic form by the slow repetitive movement of time. Time is slightly visible when the clock starts running, after a few days it excavates itself out of the matter and time will appear. From then on it slowly starts creating it’s organic form in which it will find it’s ideal shape.Then you want to forget time, shake it a bit and it will start all over again with finding it’s way. Like time heals wounds, this clock litterly heals itself by time.

I always found it difficult to reconcile the two disparate worlds of print and on-screen design, mainly because of the different unit of measurements. Math and designers never quite go well together. In comes the Pixel Ruler from UI Stencils and suddenly my sketches make sense as on screen graphics. Now if only they would put some MM measurements on the other edge and I would gladly throw all my other rulers away. Buy yours today for USD 24 at UI Stencils.
