Conventional wall clocks are characterized by their basic design that is achieved with numbers and moving arms, but the conceptual 'O’clock' has been designed to change things in a big way. Highlighting a decidedly minimalistic aesthetic, the clock works by connectivity to WiFi and will convey the time to onlookers using a series of ballbearings. This is achieved thanks to strategically placed magnets within that make it appear as though the ballbearings are moving on their own to highlight a distantly magical time-telling experience.
The conceptual 'O’clock' is the design work of Alfredo Mendez x Bitshake Studio and is the winner of the 2020 Red Dot Design Concept award. The USB-C-powered wall clock could be easily plugged in and, thanks to its hollow design, wouldn't take up any visual space when mounted.
