The Aspiral Clock is unique but don’t stare for too long or you could get hypnotized
Designing trendy, complicated, arty type clocks or watches has become a new trend for engineers with no other outlet it seems. Some of them are of course quite fantastic and not all that hard to read the time like Geoffrey Coopers Geocentric watch. Here’s another unique clock concept from Will Aspinall and Neil Lambeth who are based out of London, it’s called the Aspiral Clock. The clock consists of spiral system that slowly rotates. A small ball is the indicator of time and as it reaches the center i.e. 12 o’clock, it falls through a hole and pops right back out at the beginning of the outer most ring. It’s quite off beat and although it’s priced at 350 Pounds a piece, which works out to about $540, the designers say they’ve already delivered 50 Aspiral Clock and keep getting orders for more.
