The Colour Clock

This web clock from designer Jack Hughes displays the time like all web clocks, but it also changes the background to correspond to the hexadecimal color value represented by the numbers of the digital time. Watch for any length of time and it will change, although sometimes quite gradually. However, when I looked up #110927, I got a completely different color. The colors may be set for a specific time zone. Link -via J-Walk Blog

The numbers are scaled across the values so that, for example, the 24 hours represent 24 values spread across the 256 available values rather than just the first 24 of the 256.

If you click the right bar under the time, it shows the number it is using to determine the color.

This is really neat! I may have to sit here staring at it for a while!!
