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

By Jason Fitzpatrick on March 2nd, 2012

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.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
