The 'Ferrolic Display' is an unusual clock that uses electromagnets to display the current time. While many people use their smartphones as their primary time-telling device, others still prefer to have a digital clock on hand. This unorthodox timepiece is both functional and visually striking.

The Ferrolic Display is designed by Zelf Koelman. The device features an aquarium-like tank that houses the metallic Ferro Fluid inside. The digital clock relies on a series of powerful electromagnets to manipulate the shape of the fluid and display the correct time. The exterior display boasts a stylish aluminum frame that allows for browser-based control over the metallic fluids inside.

For those who are eager to get their hands on this unusual clock, the timepiece is now available for pre-order.
