Does anyone know more about this click? I can’t tell if I love the design or if I hate it. The photo above doesn’t look very flattering but the angle view in the gallery blow looks kind of neat. At $60, it is overpriced for what it is but it may be a neat addition to some collections.
The once concern that I have has to do with all of the non-used pixels. For example, there are dots in the middle of letters, above the hours / minutes separator that will never illuminate. Do those elements look any different?
From the website:
As best as I can tell, I believe this is just a concept clock. The claim to fame is that the clock has enough decimal points in the seconds position to count in the millionths of a second. I doubt the internal oscellator is that accurate - but I don’t think I would be able to notice if it was off by a little bit.
This is an interesting one. There is nothing technically interesting about the clock but the two features that make it stand out are the amber colored display and the clear housing. It has a pretty simple design - it is just a brick but for $20, you can’t go wrong.
The only problem is that it is no longer for sale. I originally found this one on the Urban Outfitters website but they no longer have it in stock and Kikkerland does not seem to have it on their site. Oh well :-/

I will be the first to admit that this clock is ugly. The only thing that saves this clock is the well executed LED display. It is unclear between the photos on DealExtreme.com whether this clock is orange or red, but I have seen videos and photos of both.
One word of caution: This clock does not run on 110v. This poses two distinct problems. The first one is that you will need to find a power converter for it. Not a big deal but it is a pain. Second, if it derives its clock from the mains line, it will be expecting a 50Hz reference and in the US, it will be getting a 60Hz reference instead. I don’t know if it uses the mains line for reference or has its own internal oscillator.
