Swedish designers Humans since 1982 have created a digital clock made of 24 analogue clocks, which spell out the time with their hands.
The designers have also developed a typeface derived from letter forms created by banks of clocks.
The prototype Clock Clock will be exhibited at the Rhösska design museum in Göteborg from June till mid August 2009.
See our earlier story on Celebrating the Cross 1 by humans since 1982.
Here's some text from humans since 1982:
we are designstudents at HDK Göteborg in Sweden and gathered under the name "humans since 1982".
After having successfully launched our "Surveillance Light" and our lounger "Celebrating the cross 1" we now developed a prototype of a wall clock: we call it "The clock clock". Hereby 24 manual alarm clocks show the time in a digital manner.
We also have developed a typefont on this basis. This prototype will be shown at Rhösska design-museum in Göteborg from june till mid of august 2009.
