Illustration for article titled Planetary Orbit Clock: Takes Lightyears to Read

The Planetary Orbit Clock could sit on your desk for days, even years, even lifetimes before you realized the clock's very simple logic: it's read from overhead.

Working like the original clock (the galaxy), various planets (metal balls) rotate around the sun (a bigger metal ball) to represent seconds, minutes and hours. Friends might call you a space dork, but little will they know that you are actually a time dork. And that's an important distinction, indeed.

Ultimately, $35 is a small price to pay for people not understanding why you're so weird.

The galaxy (the original clock) as mentioned WOULD take lightyears to read; you'd have to be that far away to see enough of it.

But let's not quibble in the face of such lyrical descriptions as "When it looks from directly above, as a clock the nice form exists there. The making where the using selfishness where where * indication is administered by the part where it shows 12 o'clock even among them, simple can adopt the various devices is good. In addition, the hour hand of the gold which is visible under 1st regarding the time of the photograph 1 o'clock, the amount needle of the silver which that next floats approximately 50 minutes, and the sphere which is located to the first floor has shown 5 seconds."
