Digital Sundial

Why We Love It

This clock uses an ingenious system of geometrical masking to convert the sun’s angle into a digital read-out of the time. Though the math for this sundial was worked out in the 1990s, it took the more recent advent of high-resolution 3D-printers to bring this magical device into being.
