Light Gap Concept Clock

The Light Gap is an environment-friendly concept clock that has solar cells on its backside. You can stick it on a window, so sunlight can illuminate the slit on the face to form the hour hand. As day turns into night, batteries will take over where the sunlight left off, illuminating a row of LEDs in the slit. The Light Gap is a Red Dot Concept Design 2010 winning entry.

  4. Yeah, but how 'environmentally damaging' is a normal battery powered clock?

  5. Looks goos, no sure how much use it would be in Ireland, we don't get to see much of the sun.....

  6. what an incredibly unique way to tell time! I wonder how efficient the batteries are in terms of recharging; if they were pretty good quality, this could be a true zero-emission piece of electronics (no battery waste)

  8. Wow, I want it. But my windows are always covered up so no natural light can get in. So wouldn't really work.

  9. That looks like a pretty cool clock, however it might be a bit difficult to read, especially if it's stuck to a window.
