A Morse Code Clock Makes Everything Seem More Official

Honestly reviewing morse code is a little unnecessary. We're kind of done with that whole telegraph as the primary form of communication phase. On the other hand, it never hurts to know numbers in different systems. Roman numerals come in handy every now and then, right? Sometimes?


This morse code clock is just a little vacation from the Western Arabic numerals that taunt you from your credit card bill and bank account balance. No need to be reminded of harsh realities when you're checking the time. Plus, there's something kind of great looking about the pattern of dots and dashes. [DCI via Craziest Gadget]



"5"—The only number I wouldn't confuse for something else. (Unless the minute hand was blocking a dot.)

It's a matter of personal taste, but I find roman numerals (I—XII) the only suitable thing for analog clocks. Or uniform markings throughout—that works just as well.
