Space and time are undeniably intertwined, and while technology is progressing in the direction of making better sense of this connection for us, items like Clocks for Robots are ahead of the pack. Speaking from a publicly accessible point of view of course, this QR code clock links you to a location at that precise second.

The mod rectangular timepiece has two displays, the first indicating the hour and minute numerically, and the second presenting a constantly updating bar code that contains site-specific data. If you were within view of Clocks for Robots by Berg Studio and you were to scan one with your smartphone, the Here & Now app would tell you the time, your position and provide you with venue-specific statistics and social media options.
