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.
