Forget old, traditional clocks with those lame arms — the QlockTwo (around $1,200) timepiece is breaking all the rules over here. Set in a wooden box with a custom color glass face, this clock uses little lightup words to tell you the time in five-minute increments. Not only does it give you an update every five, but for all you traditionalists who need a more accurate quote, you can check the little (more familiar) clock in the bottom corner.

Need the time my friend? Well, it is five to 11. Says so right there. But you're on your own for the a.m. and p.m. specification.
