Coolest Clock is a smartphone-connected projection clock

Coolest Clock is the wall-mounted projection display that you never realized you needed.

Scientists create most accurate clock in the world

Scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have created what they say is the most accurate clock anywhere in the world, able to keep its ticking rate to a variation of less than two parts per every quintillion. This number, not only too infinitesimal for the average mind to comprehend, is also 10 times more accurate than any other clock out there.

The clock aesthetic you're seeing on your iPhone 5 and iPad mini is one that Apple has reportedly payed a handsome sum for this week as Swiss daily reports a beastly $21 million USD as agreed upon by Apple and the timepiece's owner: SBB. This situation was first reported earlier this year after iOS 6 was released with the new graphic look at the clock used by Apple's devices and the Swiss rail group found it oddly familiar. The report today lets us know that Apple's end sum certainly speaks to the greatness of the original design of the clock's look, originally made real by Swiss engineer Hans Hilfiker in 1944.
