Have the people at Microsoft been watching the Harry Potter movies? Perhaps, as this clock was on display as part of Microsoft’s Techfest, a festival where new products being developed are revealed. Says the Seattle Times “Microsoft researchers have put a new twist on telling time, creating a digital wall clock with hands for each member of the family. Instead of numbers, the hands point to places- work, school, home- and can track a person’s location to show where he or she is at any time. Not good for teenagers, perhaps, but something parents might find interesting. ” We think Mrs. Weasley would agree…:)
Thanks Ian, Matt, and Annie!
