In my opinion the “meditation clock” from Witcher 3 would be a neat clock for everyday use, however its 24-hour single hand display would be confusing, so I added a digital clock. The sun/moon displays would illuminate when the hand nears their location.
I’d like to do similar designs for Stardew Valley and other video games that feature an in-game clock display. Maybe one day down the road.
I wonder if anyone has made a Witcher-themed display for Apple Watch or other smart watches? Google tells me not yet.
Well the image pretty much speaks for itself, I reckon. I suppose you could fix it up to actually run on steam, but that’s way too over-the-top. There is one slight dig at Valve Software, so I hope they don’t suspend my Steam account (I need my Peggle fix to function).
3 o’clock? More like Luigi o’clock, amiright? I say this because the hands on the clock look like an ‘L’…okay that joke was funnier in my head.

I found this really cool LED pixel clock, and it struck me as something that would be ideal for 8-bit or 16-bit video game clocks. The first thing that came to mind was the POW block from Mario Bros, which has a really simple look and would be ideal as a way to tell time. This device would be great as a desk or alarm clock.

The last BTTF clock design I posted has been the bane of a few DIYers and countless people who want one but are disappointed to learn it’s only a concept. In all likelihood it’s too complex a design to execute, with all the digital displays and built-in calendar to boot.

I thought this would be a handy combo, a lamp and a clock, but looking at it now I find it way too creepy. Certainly a testament to the game’s production design, which has left a lasting impression.
I probably should apologize for this design, but no, not today. Just keep scrolling if you’re new here.
