A while back, we told you about the stylish Russian Post Indicator vintage tube clock, which has been a reader favorite over the last few months. Today, we spotted the new Albert Clock that we think you’ll like just the same. Featuring a bright LED display and retro styling, this tabletop timepiece tells time a little different that usual. Albert displays math problems that equate to the correct hour and minute. Aside from challenging your brain when you go to check the time, it’s always a fun and different twist on the usual digital or analog display.
My favorite part of Albert Clock is its bright and cheery design. The LED display pops the equations off the black background, while its outer-casing ships in three different saturated colors. As for the math problems themselves, there are four different difficulty settings, so you can match your skills appropriately. Not only is this a cool gift for any techie, but it also has some potential merit for kids learning simple mathematics. The Albert Clock is available for purchase today with a €279 list price, which works out to around $295.
ALBERT is a digital clock for kids that allows us to experience learning in a playful way. An everyday object turns into a comic challenge: different levels of mathematic calculations have to be solved in order to read the time. We’re a small Paris based Enterprise and Albert Clock is our first attempt at changing something about the world we live in. We want to reveal your curiosity and make you smile with ideas that can improve your skills and make you smarter.
