Insane Watch

This is just repeating from a different blog, but it's sort of amazing that someone would come up with this. I'm not sure it's amazing as in "really cool" or amazing as in "fucked in the head."

The gist of it is that the watch gives time as the number of hours + the number of 15 minute increments + the number of minutes. Of course, the different regions aren't neatly separated just to add extra obfuscation.

Check it out.

LED geometric patterns to tell the time.

  

Travel Ugliness

For those unaware, holiday travel is off to a pretty sucky start. Denver Int'l Airport closed yesterday and is still closed, due to ~2 feet of snow - Nick was due to fly home this morning and says that the earliest flight is Sunday, via SF. On the other side of the pond, dense fog has all three London airports running way behind (as well as Manchester and Cardiff), and all domestic flights to and from Heathrow are cancelled for today and tomorrow. ugh.
