Bulbdial Clock Sundial – Doesn’t Need Sun.

April 16, 2008

From the designer himself: “I think we can all agree that sundials pretty much suck. They only have an hour hand, they don’t work at night or indoors, their accuracy changes with the seasons, and if you happen to live in the Southern hemisphere they run backwards. And yet, we all would love to be able to tell the time by looking at shadows, right? That’s why I’ve come up with the Bulbdial Clock.”

David from Ironic Sans came up with this Bulbdial clock, a marriage of lamps and sundials that makes an incredible amount of sense to us. It’s not real in the sense that your mortgage is real, but it is a nice design that takes the best of electricity and the best of shadows and makes something we’d definitely buy. The only problem is that it doesn’t work in direct sunlight, which kinda makes this the complete opposite of a sundial.
