BulbDial clock updates the sundial
With all of our complicated and complex technology it’s easy to forget that most began as something primitive and simple. Take the clock, for instance. It began as a simple and uncomplicated sundial. The problem is that the sun is not always out and a single hand only gives you a rough estimate of the time.

Today we need just a little more accuracy. The BulbDial Clock takes the sundial and updates it by replacing the sun with three lamps that rotate around a central pole. Shadows are cast for hours, minutes, and seconds. It took somebody awhile to figure out a good upgrade to the original time-telling gadget, but better late then never. It’s just a concept at the moment, though.
