The Last Clock Encapsulates and Displays Time Through Footage

It is said that time is relative, and the Last Clock app allows users to perceive that law of physics by having your iPad take video footage of its surroundings and then playing it back to you in varied time-warped intervals.

The Last Clock works much like a standard analog clock, except the hands of the clock are made up of slices of recorded video footage. The recording of the footage takes place at different refresh rates, meaning the images captured by the seconds hand will be vastly different from the minutes hand and the hour hand (if you placed your iPad in an interesting location of course). The Last Clock app thus acts as a kind of visual memory, allowing users to see what it's like to perceive time at in 60 seconds, 60 minutes, and 12 hours chunks.
