Smash proof clocks

34519_1_468

Imagine a clock that you can smash all you want and it won’t break. Keep Imagining because that clock doesn’t exist. However, Matthias Lange here, has come up with a prototype called ‘Smash’ that not only takes a beating but encourages you to by making it part of its interface. You have to punch it to stop it ringing.

Bead Clock

beadclock1

Thorunn Arnadottir’s bead clock is a necklace where each bead represents 5 minutes. The orange and red beads represent hours. As the wheel on which it rests, turns, one bead falls off thus counting the passing of time.

To tell the time, one has to count the beads and to help with that, Thorunn has a silver bead for midnight and a golden one for noon.

According to Thorunn, his prototype’s goal was to create a more ‘emotional’ perception of time and to take it further, you could express your freedom from time by removing the beads from the wheel, then in a symbolic gesture of defiance, he recommends you wear the necklace as a statement that you are in control of your minutes.

Saw off your own Clock

Time telling products have always leveraged their production process as part of their storytelling in order to add an emotional value. Maria and Piotr from Gogo borrow this age old meme with a fresh approach – they made multiple clocks in a single length of raw pinewood with the intention of involving the customer in the process by making them hack their item from the log thus creating their personal touch and hopefully, some emotion attachment to the item.
