Read the time

 

No more hands and digits, only words! Biegert & Funk’s fancy QlockTwo Touch clocks use only words for time telling.  The display is made of well organized arrangement of letters, and supports various languages including English, German, French, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Russian and Spanish. The QlockTwo Touch includes a night light illuminating the whole board. I bet it will be hard to fall asleep in the first few days of purchase, with your eyes constantly attracted to the board trying to read the time.
