The world's coolest clock


Alas, it's not for sale at any price.

It was designed by 36-year-old industrial designer Inga Sempé (above).

What makes it so great?

Well, for starters, it's both analog and digital.

The minute hand shows the minutes as an L.E.D. digital readout, as does the hour hand the hours.

But here's the genius of her design: the two displays at the ends of the respective hands always rotate so that their numbers are perfectly readable without bending your head.

I want one.


A lot.
