So how do you happen to read time from a Domino Clock? The Domino Clock designed by the Carbon Design Group reflects the iconic game with a set of three huge domino tiles set side by side. The changes in the number of the white dots on the black background reveals the time. The first tile represents the hour while the next two in combination gives you the minute. So the above time sums up to be 10:59.
Joe Sullivan [an industrial designer at Carbon Design Group] states, “People have a lot of immediate associations with everyday things, especially iconic ones.It’s interesting to play with these expectations. In this case, we’re taking a well-known object out of its normal context and giving it new capabilities, allowing it to function as something completely different.”
