Anyone who once attended high school likely remembers how it felt to stare at the clock through math class (unless, of course, you liked math — and for that we applaud you). But what if that clock actually made you work to know the time?
Well, there is now what is either the coolest clock ever created, or the most frustrating: . The time device works by providing equations for each hour and minute of the day, and its difficulty can be adjusted to six different levels. Minimalist and sleek, the clock comes in scholar red, lucid white and concrete grey.
Designed by , a lecturer in product design at ASADMM College of Art and Design in Marseille, France, the clock is €279.00, or $295. The concept was originally conceived during Schindlbeck's thesis, in which he created 50 designs in 50 days, according to . (He obviously has a thing for numbers.)
According to the company's website, it was created for kids — but that's not to say us adults can't enjoy its sleek design and puzzling intrigue. Besides, wouldn't you feel just a little smarter if you had to calculate 6 x 3 and 7 + 7 x 7 to figure out it was 6:55?
If the answer is "yes, yes indeed I would," check out more photos of the clock below — and start crunching those numbers.
