If you want a completely unconventional accessory that’s half transforming sculpture and half time telling device, the Etch Clock is exactly the thing for your beside table. Using a patent-pending system that’s like the inverse of one of those pin sculptures you stick your hands into, Etch “engraves” the time into its face when it displays it every thirty seconds. The dark gray elastomer display is housed in an aluminum frame that will match any decor and can be hung on a wall or displayed on a base. Options for display and time sync are available via an iPhone or Android app, so this isn’t one of those cool products that excludes half its potential customers. But you also don’t need an app, so don’t think you’re completely out of luck if you don’t want to sync it with your smartphone.
