Ok. Stop what you are doing because you just got to know about this insane clock.

The Switchital looks like an ordinary clock until the time changes. Then, like magic, the digits seem to come alive and move to show that another minute or hour has passed.

Actually, the digits on the surface of the clock are metal bars that are controlled by magnets. This mechanism seems simple, but it performs quite complex movements in order to show the time is such an unique way.
