You know you want this Lego binary clock for your desk

When you need a new alarm, don’t settle for the standard clock. Instead, try making one out of Lego—one that happens to tell the time in binary.

Lego modder nxt1engineer made this clock from Lego bricks and a Mindstorms NXT kit, and placed white markers on rotating spindles to indicate the time. You don’t need to know binary to read the clock, either; you just need to know how to add. Of course, you’ll need to be quick-witted to reel off the seconds, but at least your not-so-geeky friends will be impressed!
