Switchital – Moving 7 Segment Digital Wall Clock

at 11:53 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets


Swiss designer Matthias Pugin has made a crazy clock called Switchital which is a Moving 7 Segment Digital Wall Clock that works by moving hidden magnets which arrange bars of 7 segment displays. At first I thought this was a design simulation but I think it’s real! I would like to have a look at the guts inside the clock and the controller that is an amazing choreographer.

EDIT: Matthias just got back to me. It’s currently a concept but a prototype is in the works. I can’t wait to see how the internals are configured when it is built.
