Bulbdial Clock Sundial Concept Makes a Lot of Sense

Illustration for article titled Bulbdial Clock Sundial Concept Makes a Lot of Sense

David from Ironic Sans came up with this Bulbdial clock, a marriage of lamps and sundials that makes an incredible amount of sense to us. It's not real in the sense that your mortgage is real, but it is a nice design that takes the best of electricity and the best of shadows and makes something we'd definitely buy. The only problem is that it doesn't work in direct sunlight, which kinda makes this the complete opposite of a sundial. [Ironic Sans via MAKE]

"The only problem is that it doesn't work in direct sunlight, which kinda makes this the complete opposite of a sundial."

Nightdial, perhaps?

With a few modifications this could actually manage to be BOTH. Imagine something like this in a modern outdoor garden that, during the day, does operate as a sundial, but at night the lights come on and continue to operate the clock.
