5 volt Clock

The concept of time is a construction of man’s imagination. It is regarded as an invisible guideline for our lives. As a result we slaves counting the hours, minutes, and seconds. Rather than counting, which leads to all manner of behaviors, I will measure the time with the 5 volt Clock. When we measure something

The 5 volt clock measures time in quantities of volts.  The current time is generated by a Real Time Clock embedded in the otherwise custom circuitry of the piece. Using a microcontroller, the time is interpreted into a range of zero to five volts. The amount of voltage is displayed on the three panel meters. 

The conventional clock and the way we count time is perhaps outdated. The 5 volt clock offers an alternative to the traditional counting of time and our behavior towards time itself. Perhaps by measuring instead of counting and tallying, new behaviors will emerge.
