Reel to Reel Audio Tape Clocks

There’s always a special place in our hearts for something that cleverly re-purposes an object to fit another use.  It’s ingenuity, or in the common nomenclature of popular culture, MacGuyvering.  These clocks get our stamp of approval by taking something unusual–a reel of old school audio tape–and using it as the face of a clock.    Definitely not something you see every day.  Also, if you ever have an emergency where there’s a life or death situation that can only be resolved with 600 feet of audio tape, you’ll have it handy.  Unlikely, but you never know.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
