Vague Clock — "Time is squishy"


South Korean designer Sejoon Kim has designed a clock where users have to feel the flexible face to reveal the time.


The hands of the analog clock are hidden behind a layer of stretchy fabric and remain invisible as the time ticks away.


To read the time you have to get up and press your hand into the fabric so that it stretches over the hands, making them palpable and visible.


It also equipped with GPS hardware so that the time is always accurate, without buttons or dials allowing it to be manually adjusted.


"Too much information can put pressure on people," said Sejoon Kim. "Vague Clock obscures one's reading of the minute and hour hands to relieve the feeling of having to chase time."
