The Rotating Clockface

Clocks have kind of always looked the same since the sundial. There are some marks on the face and there’s ‘something’ moving around on it: either a shadow cast by the sun or the hands of the clock. I thought it would be fun to try out something new: the rotating dial!

Example clocks

Above you see what such a thing would look like: the hand stands still and the circle of numbers rotates around it.

Prototyping time

I’ve created a really working version of this. You can see the actual time below and it updates every minute!
