The weirdest clock I’ve ever seen

Okay, well, maybe it’s not the weirdest . But a Flash-animation clock composed of cables hooking and unhooking themselves sure is funny-lookin’. Oddly mesmerizing, though.

Update: It turns out if you go to the main page of this site — which is the portfolio of German Flash designer Andre Michelle — and click on the “downloads” pull-list, you can download this clock as a screensaver! While you’re at it, check out his incredible collection of audiovisual Flash experiments and games. This guy is insanely brilliant.

(Thanks to the Viridian List for this one!)
