What is it about designers that drives them to create objects that are just plain annoying to use? I’m sure that a lot of things sound good in their heads, but aren’t actually practical when put to the test. Take this weird Eyeclock for example.
Sure, it’s kind of cute to look at. It looks like a pair of crazy eyes, but what time is it? After staring at it for several seconds, you’ll probably be able to figure out the time. However, if you’re sitting more than a few feet away, you’ll only get a rough approximation at best. Personally, I don’t want to have to stare at a clock for more than a second or two to figure out the time. Since this is merely a concept design, there’s a good chance I won’t actually ever have to look at one.
