DIY Clock Turns Laser Diodes and a Salad Bowl Into a Futuristic Clock

If you’re a fan of analog clock faces but crave a futuristic edge to your time tracking, this DIY project combines a salad bowl and some laser diodes to create a laser-armed clock.

Unlike a tradition minute/hour hand arranged in a 12 hour ring, this clock shines a laser along the wall with the hours on one side and the minutes on the other. It’s an interesting hybrid of traditional time telling, a new configuration, and of course, lasers. Hit up the link below for more photos.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
