There are no two ways about it. Using LEDs in modern clocks just makes them look better and brighter. But what about if you like the look and feel of old clocks and you don't care much for those large numbers? What if you're looking for something more stylish and noteworthy?
Ligne Roset comes to the rescue with their Pixel clock. The Pixel clock might look like an ordinary big clock, but it's anything but that. It's face is honeycomeb fiberglass filled with 300 LEDs, that are encircled by a satin lacquered steel bezel. It's equipped with a switch to turn the LEDs on or off. It comes with a transparent cable so that you can plug it into a socket if it's not wired directly into a wall.
The reason why it's called the Pixel clock is that the LEDs simulate a pixellated analog clock. Since each "pixel" is represented by an LED, you can see why this clock seems so pixellated. From afar, it's hard to understand, until you step closer and examine the surface of the clock. It's really an ingenious design. [via Today and Tomorrow]
