Clock uses its own batteries for hands...

It’s nice to know that we haven’t abandoned clocks in this digital age, and just when I thought the Morse Code clock was as minimalist as they come, here comes “The Front & Back” clock. See the hands on the clock face? In case you haven’t figured it out yet, they are the batteries. I’m sure that you probably figured out that these batteries are the only thing powering this clock. Just think, all this time I have had clocks on my walls that used batteries on the back, when I should have put them on the front! This clock is designed by a group known as The Wrong Objects, but I really think that this group is misnamed. I think it should be the right objects, as the batteries are finally getting their place in importance on the clock: the front. Yeah, without those batteries, there would be no clock. You would only have a clock that is right twice a day. Batteries, you are getting your due! Best of all, I don’t have to take the clock down when it is time to change the battery. Well, it doesn’t look like this clock is going to be making its way to the consumer any time soon. However, I’ve seen stranger and less useful things end up being mass-produced and in the hands of consumers, so I don’t see why you wouldn’t see this at Wal-Mart.
