When you think about it all the advancements made in global communications over the years are still at the mercy of differing time zones. Sure you can setup that video conference call with your associates on the other side of the planet just so long as they agree to get out of bed in the middle of the night.
So if you want a constant glaring reminder that it’s either too early or too late to make that call this World Time Clock should do the trick. Unlike the analog variety typically seen filling the wall in a newsroom this digital version manages to cram the current time for 22 different cities into a space roughly the size of a poster. Each of the cities listed is represented by a classic red LED digital clock and they’re all tied into each other meaning adjusting the time in one location should adjust it in all the others automagically.
The cities listed include Baghdad, Beijing, Buenos Aires, Cairo, Chicago, Hong Kong, Jakarta, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Moscow, New Delhi, New York, Nairobi, Paris, Perth, Rio De Janeiro, Rome, Seoul, Sydney, Tokyo and Vancouver and since the clock sells for about $264 you’re paying about $12 per location.
