A Very Unique Clock

An Actionscript (Flash) programmer who has a blog called ‘PixelBreaker‘ has built a very clever clock that uses a polar plot to show the passing of time. Here’s a capture, with a link to the real thing:

A great example of good information design, if there ever was one. I’m thinking that it might be easy to read, once you get used to it. And pretty, too. Will make a nice screen saver.

  1. First I would like to congratulate you on this application, secondly could this application be configured for the Iphone. There are many clients who would pay for this application to be used as a smart phone feature.

  2. First, I’m afraid I can’t take credit for the application, as the posting attributes it to the Flash programmer ‘Pixelbreaker’.

    As far as programming for the iPhone, if Adobe finishes their Flash Player for the iPhone, then it will not need to be configured for the device, since it is essentially a (dynamically generated) looping Flash animation. I’m not sure it would be worth paying for, unless it could replace the graphic and time on the initial ‘unlock’ screen.
