Flavor of time / wall clock

Flavor of time
Flavor of time

Time had existed before the birth of human beings and it has been expressed in the form of clock and has developed in the perceiving method through vision. If we are to perceive the time by other sensory organ, we might be able to feel the time, which will bring a completely different thinking and behavior.

The numerous holes are the exit of fragrance. If we insert fragrance-containing capsule we want into the holes of corresponding time on the back side, it will make smell at the time. Take for a instance, if you insert the fragrance of toast at 7 o'clock, you will get up at 7 o’clock
with the scent of toast and know it is 7 o'clock.
