Ball Clock: A Cooler Way To Tell Time

I found out about this cool gadget from one of my Twitter friends, a fourteen-year-old blogger named Xavier Lur from Singapore who calls himself Kid Tech Guru. He blogs about cool Web 2.0 tools and tech websites. You can visit his blog here for more cool tips. Kid Tech Guru got the idea from a programmer named Adam Bowman. You can visit Adam’s site here where you can copy the code for the clock so you can embed it into your blog (even WordPress!!!!) or social networking site. According to the site, you can edit the colors of the balls, lines, and numbers. I was only able to change the colors from black to white and vice versa. I wanted to change them to lovely green and blue Creekview colors, but, sadly, they refused to cooperate. Maybe you’ll have better luck. I case you haven’t figured the clock out, the hour is on the bottom line, and the minutes are on the middle and then the top line. Each ball in the middle row stands for five minutes. Thanks Xavier and Adam!
