Author Clock - Literary Quote Time Display
Word nerds probably thought they had it made when we went from clocks that read 12:00 to clocks that spell out the time in words. But now the Author Clock thumbs its nose at both of thee's, making the hour and its minutes even more novel with a literary quote time display. "To begin my life with the beginning of my life, I record that I was born on a Friday, at twelve o'clock at night." - From David Copperfield, by Charles Dickens.
Preloaded with over 2,000 quotes from 6 centuries' worth of authors, the Author Clock merges mentions of time in escapist fiction with the inescapable reality that you're about to be late for dinner at your in-laws'. There's a different quote for every minute of the day, and Author Clock will be updated with new timely quotes as maker Mechanical Design Labs discovers them.
Author Clock displays its quoted time through an e-reader screen that emits no blue light, and has no glare. Small desktop and larger wall-mounted versions are available for backing on Kickstarter through November 12, 2021 at - hey, Author Clock, whaddaya got for 11:59 p.m.?
