Tell Time Without Numbers

The Verbarius Digitless Clock from ThinkGeek displays the time without using the typical digital format.  It uses the same words that people use when they say the time.  For example, 12:00am is displayed as Midnight with the Verbarius.  The clock comes pre-loaded with English, German, Spanish, French, and Russian, but there are more than a dozen other languages you can download from the manufacturer’s site.  The clock operates on 110/220v, and it uses batteries for backup in case of power failure.  The Verbarius Digitless Clock is $189.99 at ThinkGeek.

    These word clocks are cool. But apparently they all charge by the letter.

    Any clocks of normal cost that use this idea?

    Finally Janet posts a clock that is easy to READ and get the time from!
    Love it…

    Bob, I’m so ashamed to have let everyone down in my quest to find the most impossible to use watches and clocks around. I’ll try harder next time. 😉
