"TIME TURNTABLE" / conceptual clock

This is a special clock named Time Turntable. Often people are concerned about the passage of time and being controlled by time. However, they do not have to worry so much about time.

This clock displays the time only when it is rotated. The LED light on the clock appears based on the principle of temporary retention of visual information. The time is not displayed for long. As the turntable slows to a stop, the time disappears. The time appearing and soon disappearing causes people to think deeply and cherish time. By this new experience, those who are anxious about time can now ignore it.
