  • OK, so you're a geek—prove it!

    This clever time piece is easy enough for any binary thinking geek to read, but it will amaze the non-geeks who will inevitably be mesmerized by it's ever-changing display. I know this because I found myself hypnotized by this clock--one of our NPR tech gurus (and self-proclaimed geek) Josha has one on his desk. Luckily, the box has an easy to understand explanation for how to read the time, so even people like me can seem like binary brainiacs!!

    Your Choice of RED LED with a semi-translucent red face or BLUE LED with a silver face.

  • A "Dim" button on the rear with 2 different levels

    A startup option that allows the time to be displayed in "true" binary mode, using the rows for Hours, Minutes, and Seconds. Using this option, left to right, the row lights are valued at 32/16/8/4/2/1 (so if "1" is an ON light, 59 is shown as 1/1/1/0/1/1)... (Confused? Don't worry - it's easier than it sounds and it is only an option)

    Automatic detection of the ac line frequency for worldwide ease of use.

    Size: 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 2"; Packaged Weight: 10 oz

    Note: Be sure that the line voltage is 120V (US Standard). Clock can be used outside the US with any regular voltage converter.
