Epoch Clock - By ThinkGeek (OEM unknown)
$39.99 / Thinkgeek.com
I love this clock. It is nerdy on so many levels but manages to keep a good formal arrangement. Who says geeks can’t be designers?
The Epoch in this case refers to the Unix Epoch (AKA POSIX Time) of 00:00:00 UTC Jan 1, 1970. Basically, computers count time as an integer starting at that time. That integer is converted to HH MM SS by the computer and then displayed in a human readable format. This clock displays the raw vale for the time. Additionally, this clock can display time in hexadecimal, octal, binary or roman numeral formats. I still can’t read roman numerals so I don’t think I will be using that one too much….
