The Author Clock by Mechanical Design Labs is a novel digital clock that uses quotes from well known books to tell the time. The clever timepiece lifts passages from hundreds of years of literature to provide quotes that refer to the exact time of day. Framed in wood, the clock offers customizable fonts, is rechargable, and has a zero blue light emitting screen. According to Mechanical Design Labs, the “Author Clock transforms checking the time into a whimsical event, transporting you into key moments in literature and writing history. Containing thousands of quotes from a diverse range of authors, Author Clock is a creative and inspiring way to tell time. If you love a good book and great story, this is the clock for you.”
Mechanical Labs is raising funds through Indegogo to bring The Author Clock to a wider market. The current asking price is a bit steep, but hopefully the crowdfunding campaign will bring it down soon.
