Clock-maker these days are eager to get the hands off the clock. Why? As explained by the intelligent design of Invotis Wall Gear Clock– it’s all about coolness. Perhaps this does not apply to everyone, but I personally love looking at some of the high-end watches that exposes its tiny little gears working tirelessly to make sure its owner arrives at meetings on time. I think it’s cool – it proves that a clock is more than just the face and the mismatched pair of hands – it got some intricate machinery working behind it.
Since hands no longer qualify for the clocks of the 21st century, Wil Van Den Bos employs a small black arrow to point to the numbers that represent every hour. The numbers 1 to 12 are established on the circumference of the monstrous gear wheel. And while the wheel spins, so does the time. Don’t worry about any noise pollution in your house if you decide to bring this home – the gears work slowly and quietly.
2 D batteries are required to keep the gears going round and round, but the batteries are not included. The clock is 22 inches in diameter and 26 inches high – a perfect dimension to add some funkiness to a boring wall. You get to choose between several colours too. However, it needs a little setup that can’t go wrong if you read the instruction. Throw in some $125 to show the world how much you love engineering.
Do you like fish but don’t feel like cleaning any aquariums? Ever felt like having an aquarium that does not need any cleaning? Now you can because there is a Non Virtual USB Aquarium available in the market. The beauty part of this creation is that, unlike any other computer applications, it is a computer programmed desktop aquarium that provides a comfortable habitat for real fishes to live in.
Water will continuously be circulated through a filtration system, once the USB port is plugged in. There are also attached gooseneck lamps and 6 LEDs inside the aquarium that projects light onto the interior of the aquarium or at the desk. Furthermore, the LEDs located inside the non virtual USB aquarium will project light of different colors.
The date and the indoor temperature will be measured and shown on an alarm clock that has an integrated alarm and display screen. Apart from that, there is an extra compartment next to the aquarium which allows you to store your gears or things in it.
Also, five different types of nature sounds will be played through an integrated speaker to help soothe the mood of the fishes. This virtual aquarium is able to hold up to 1 ½ quarts of water and AA batteries are needed for the cloak to operate. Moreover, the aquarium will also be powered up to two days by an integrated rechargeable battery.
With the built-up of 9 inches in length and height and 4 inches in dimension and weighs around 2lbs, the non virtual USB aquarium is also equipped with a USB cable and some artificial trees and stones in the interior.
