Anelace clocks are elegant and educational -- sure to be a conversation starter and make telling the time more interesting.
Lexington, MA (PRWEB) March 30, 2013
Lyle Morris, is a silicon valley based electrical engineer who has years of product design and development experience including responsibility for many well-known products from Bell Laboratories, Xerox, and Apple, Inc. Morris is the creator of the Anelace Powers of 2 clock. It uses LEDs to display the time in binary code, which is a method of representing computer instructions using 0s and 1s. The columns on the display correspond to hours, minutes and seconds, and each row is assigned a value. To calculate the time, add up the values of the LEDs that are lit up in each column. (Instructions are included, and it's surprisingly easy to understand, once someone learns the code.)
The display changes constantly as time passes, and it’s mesmerizing to watch. Lyle’s timepiece is elegant, a great conversation starter, and also educational. Using binary code to represent a familiar value, like time, makes it a little easier to comprehend how the coding system could be used to represent text and other characters within computers. It just might spawn a new hobby or jumpstart a young coder’s imagination. Anelace clocks are elegant and educational -- sure to be a conversation starter and make telling the time more interesting.
