Functional Tickers That Tell Time the Way You Want Them to

Clocks have been reinvented with this new product from WoodstockClocks. This time teller consists of a whiteboard, a dry marker, four dots and three hands (second, minute and hour).

All you have to do is draw your own design to completely customize your own ticker. Better yet, you can change it as often as you would like!

Implications - For creative people, this is an awesome invention. I also think that it could be very useful in a school setting to help children learn how to tell time and practice their drawing skills. I feel that children learn best when they're having fun. Learning without knowing they're learning can be a tricky task, so disguising an undesirable task as something enjoyable is the key to a good product.
