XKCD world projection clock

XKCD: Now provides a 24-hour frame with times marked as “buisiness hours” or “rude to call” A south-pole projection with countries labeled near the edge rotates in the center.

The Sasa Clock

The Sasa Clock by Thórunn Árnadóttir. This innovative clock tells time by way of five-minute beads.
