Study Of Time Clock Uses Shadows To Tell Time [video]

| November 1, 2011 | Reply

Sundials were a way for people to use shadows to tell time way back before a clock was invented. More or less you could place an object outside and as the sun would move across the sky the shadow the object produced could be used to tell you what time of day it was. In a modern sense, this is a sundial. Only it uses LED lights and is much more accurate than the old way of doing it.

rAndom International’s a study of time #1 is visually appealing and very neat. I think many modern homes and businesses would enjoy a product like this. For now, it’s just an art project and there’s no word on if you may be able to purchase one at any time. If you are, it won’t be cheap. The clock is on display in London at the Carpenters gallery.
