Design is by Zerofee.
I think it’s similar in design to the excellent Timedisc.
Twilight awareness – the gift of time.
Skyclock is twilight, sunrise, and sunset times on an analog face for your exact location.
Skyclock, for both the iPhone and the PC (Windows only), has a 24 hour mode that makes a lot more sense to me than the 12 hour ‘conventional’ mode.
I feel it’s similar to the more minimal Sol for the iPhone, but sadly that seems to have disappeared from the App store.
In Prague, the great astronomical clock, the Orloj, celebrates 600 years of timekeeping. It’s worth seeing the video made by the macula:
From the Museum’s web site:
LDN24 follows a 24-hour day in the life of London with hundreds of filmed sequences from across the capital – framing the city waking, working and winding down on a giant plasma screen.
An enveloping stream of 35 real-time information flows around the LED ellipse producing an ever-changing map of the city. From tidal patterns to temperatures, flight arrivals to FTSE fluctuations, RSS feeds and live links to Google searches, partner news channels and Twitter keep an ear turned to the rhythms that compose the city. Software specially developed by the design studio FIELD choreographs the rituals and movements of London and Londoners into a compelling statistical dance.
There’s a movie too.
If you have some time (and a Mac), please could you test my one-handed 24 hour clock screensaver?
I added a GMT/UT0 hand, but I’m not sure if it works well outside GMT-land.
(It doesn’t make any sounds. That’s just a zen reference.)
You can now read about the ultimate 24 hour watch in the book “Glycine Airman: a 24 hour timeline of flight”.
