The Orbits is a 3D clock made of physics. A trio of rings intersect and rotate to display the time with depth, scientific artfulness, and in a way that will promote bumping into the clock every time you pass, and probably breaking it within a week of hanging it on your wall.

Orbits rings are assigned hours, minutes, and seconds counting duties, and each has a small golden indicator rod to assist those who actually want to use the clock to tell time. Rings are made of ultralight carbon fiber and the base metal. The base has a diameter of 5.1", but the rings require a 13" diameter wall space to tick.
