1. ## 'Geek Clock'

This is billed as a 'Geek Clock' [included in the picture and on the face of the clock as 'GeekCook']

There are two values I can't figure out at the moment:

Those for 3 and 4 O'Clock.

Those representing 7 and 11 O'Clock I can't even make a start on at the moment.

Can anyone get me started on figuring these out and explain 3 and 4 O;Clock also. It is really bugging me now.

Edit: I am guessing that Log(55) is not in Base 10 but which base is it?

2. 1 o'clock http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=tan%2845%29
2 o'clock sqrt(4) = 2
3 o'clock is simply a rounding of the value of pi equaling 3
4 o'clock is the result of log(55) in base 10 according to Wolfram Alpha log(55) - Wolfram|Alpha
5 o'clock http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i...D3%5E2%2B4%5E2
6 o'clock http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=3%21
7 o'clock I'm guessing the rounding of 6.9
8 o'clock 16/2 = 8
9 o'clock 3x3=9
10 o'clock g = gravity constant of 9.8m/s/s rounds to 10
11 o'clock 0x0B is hexidecimal for 11 in base 10
12 o'clock 1100 in base 2 binary equals 1x8 + 1x4 + 0x2 + 0x1 = 12

Thank you - that was driving me mad

4. where can these be purchased from????

5. I'd like one too. I've seen several versions on various websites.

6. 7 = 6.9 reoccurring

Because we all know that 0.9... (or 0.9 reoccurring) = 1

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/0.999...

.

7. I can't tell digital time when it reaches 20, 21, 22, hundred hours. it just confuses me... STILL! I know... we only learnt how to count upto two at school when I was there...

testing 1... 2.... testing 1... 2...

0.999... - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

.

I thought it was something different due to the line above the 9 in the 6.9

I found this website which appears to show the clock available for sale:

Geek Cook Geek Clock For Sale

Using Google to translate the page is no help. Can anyone here provide a meaningful translation?

10. My wife suggested that I do a new search. This is what I turned up:

My wife prefers the first clock but says that at least this one has a website and price we can understand.

There is an explanation of the symbols/equations used on the face of the clock below the image on the website.

11. I came across this one too but, like your wife, I prefer the original version.

12. Aspiral Clocks: Clocks that slowly move throughout the day, using a ball rather than clock hands to tell the time.

Apparently they want \$547.00 [per clock!] At that price they can keep them. They look nice though.

13. Redundant Clock:

14. They have lots of variants for sale here, cheap too!
