The Present clock tells the time in seasons

There’s that popular saying, “yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that’s why we call it the present”. This saying seems to have been taken and embodied by Scott Thrift, an inventor and filmmaker that created m ss ng p eces. His Kickstarter project seems to be based on present and it’s a clock, dubbed The Present, that tells the time in seasons, as opposed to the seconds, minutes and hours.

While we’re not sure how practical it would be to buy a clock that doesn’t actually tell you the time now, for those looking for an interesting conversation piece to decorate their mantlepiece, this abstract looking clock could do the trick.

It tells the “time” of the various seasons by the color gradient used to mark the Equinoxes and Solstices throughout the year, and much like the seasons, it would take an entire year for the clock to make one full circle. The Present will apparently last you a good 12 years before its battery runs out, and at the moment remains a prototype device. If you’re into collecting abstract pieces of art, a donation of $120 will net you The Present if and when the project kicks off. For more information and a demonstration video, head on down to Scott Thrift’s Kickstarter page.
