For thousands of years, humans have used light to tell time. Greeks developed sundials from knowledge shared by the ancient Babylonians. The farmer's almanac could tell you how to figure out how many hours you had before sunset using just the sun and your hand. And when the sunlight manages to creep past our blackout shades, we know it's time to get up.
Now you can use light to tell time in a more spectacular way with the Chromatic: LED Color Spectrum Clock. This groovy clock, which you can hang on your wall or stand on a flat surface, contains 60 unique LEDs for vibrant display. There are 6 different animation modes, one of which is sure to make you happy. The only problem we can see with this clock is that you'll be checking it all the time, because it's so much fun to look at. "Sorry, boss. I'm listening to your meeting! I was just mesmerized by the clock...."
