The Acoustic Alarm

April 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Designer Jamie McMahon has created a functional concept for an acoustic alarm. After tuning the strings with pegs similar to a violin, a single chord is strummed by an internal mechanism at the designated time. Listening to the video it actually makes a lovely sound.

I love the concept of this candle clock designed by Nathalie Dewez. I’ve poked around quite a bit and can’t find it for sale anywhere, alas. (via notcot)

Venn Diagram Clock

About Time is a clock by RISD grad and Fulbright scholar Louie Rigano that abstracts the precise function of hour, minute and second hands to translucent, amorphous color wheels. The accuracy and function of such a clock is somewhat debatable and I would probably consider this more of an art piece than a means of making it to an interview on time. Unfortunately this is just a prototype but according to Rigano he plans to eventually put it into production. Yes, please. (via fastco)
