This looks like a backwards step. Maybe it's because reading skills are not my strengths. I'm waiting for some genius to come up with a "language" that would allow complex ideas to be communicated very precisely with a single glance. So instead of gobbling a string of text and digesting each word like Pac-Man, we can just "look" at the pattern and understand what is being communicated. This "single glance" is attempted in speed reading, but reality is that you're still have to process the information serially. Anyhow, I think a clock that doesn't require me to process words would be more efficient.

Me encanta el reloj. El precio? No tanto.

Slick. Very slick. I'd buy one at 1/10 the price.
