About Time. A clock for kairos time.

run the sketch—view the code

How do you use it?
Tell somebody about what time it is.

What is it?
A clock… sort of. This sketch is just a modification of the anaLog Clock from last March. Watch it for a few seconds if you can. It’s drawing the clock hands at random distances from where they should be according to the actual time. The result… you can only tell about what time it is. I know it’s hard to watch, but that’s really not the point. I’d like to polish it up a little, but for now, consider it a proof of concept.

Why is it cool?
My life is a constant struggle with time. Or, more specifically, chronos time. If I can avoid knowing the “exact” time, I’m all for it. Maybe this is clock for kairos time.
