iPhone Screenshots


This is a screen full of slowly rotating clock hands which, at a first glance, look randomly distributed. However, they are cleverly arranged such that for every full hour some of the hands line up to display the hour's digit.

You may slide your finger down or up on the screen to move the time forward or backward to explore the other digits. The clock automatically switches back to the current time when you release the finger.

Inspired by an installation of Christiaan Postma.

- Home screen and StandBy widgets
- Circular and classic (rectangular) layout of the clock hands
- An option to highlight the relevant clock hands for easier reading of the time
- Haptic feedback

Don't expect it to be a useful clock. Just play around with the clock hands and have fun!

What’s New

How to tell time...

As the hour progresses, all of the "sticks" rotate. Around the top of the hour the sticks align to form the number of the hour at the appropriate position. In other words, if it is three o'clock a 3 made of sticks will form at the three o'clock spot. You can slide your finger along the face of the phone and see all the numbers form, but to see it work as a clock you have to let this run in the dock.

Really cool!

Once I started to realize how this worked, I couldn't tear my eyes away. Very intelligent app!
