verbari90908.jpgIt's eleven thirty-five. Make that thirty-five minutes past eleven. Trust the Verbarius to spell it out for you. The ideal time-teller for lovers of text, it changes its syntax minute by minute.

By Art Lebedev, this graphic LCD screen reads silently behind dark tinted glass in five preloaded languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Russian. Or plug in its USB port to upload any other language (except maybe numeric).

To keep things more interesting, Verbarius switches up how it spells it out every minute: forty-five minutes past four, or fifteen minutes to five, or four forty-five, or a quarter to five.

Originally spotted on the ever-changing Charles & Marie Soupe de Jour, order it from the designer for $221.88+shipping.

The ever-so-jaunting language changing knob makes us smile, too.
