A clock promises to tell the time in style ??" by writing the time in SEQUINS. Called Sequino, the device continually redraws the time using a small robotic pointer. It is the work of Ekaggrat Singh Kalsi, a Beijing-based architect who likes making inventions in his free time. He says he was inspired by his daughter???s t-shirt. He explains: ??sThis project is a continuation of my quest to build a robotic clock which can write and rewrite the time continuously day in and day out and keep going doing it.??? Ekaggrat says his first attempt used a marker pen, but it kept drying up. ??sThis clock was inspired by my daughters t shirt with the pattern changing sequin cloth glued to it. After getting some stock fabric from a vendor I figured out the size of the clock based on the minimum resolution of the cloth.??? But although the device brings the bling, Ekaggrat accepts the Sequino may have drawbacks as a timepiece, especially as it takes several minutes to draw the digits. He says: ??sThe clock, when turned on for the first time, begins by writing all the digits one by one, which takes almost 4 minutes to complete. Thereafter, the digits are updated only once in 3 minutes, as drawing a single digit takes almost 1 minute.??? ??sThe clock presently is slow due to the speed limit of the motors and to keep the sequin cloth from falling apart,??? he adds.
