Designer Sejoon Kim of South Korea has designed a clock where users have to feel the flexible face to reveal the time.
Called Vague Clock, the analogue timepiece has a squashy cover that hides the time until pressed inwards.
The clock is updated by GPS so remains accurate despite the hands being touched.
The design concept was awarded at the 2010 Red Dot Awards.
"Too much information can put pressure on people," says Sejoon Kim. "Vague Clock obscures one’s reading of the minute and hour hands to relieve the feeling of having to chase time."
