It’s About Time
At first I thought this was a really clever concept for a clock:
How often do you really need to know exactly what time it is? How often do you ask, “what minute is it?” Those are the questions I asked when i first saw this clock, and the answer to both is, “rarely”? But the logic behind that line of questioning is flawed? Just because I rarely need to know exactly what time it is, doesn’t mean that at some point I won’t really need to know exactly what time it is?
The first time I looked up at this clock and wanted to know, for example, if I had two minutes to go to the bathroom before a meeting, and the clock didn’t have an answer, I would be extremely frustrated. Especially because a boring, regular, old clock would have been perfectly capable.
