World Clock

The 11+ World Clock transforms the relatively mundane task of calculating time zone differences into an interactive and highly aesthetic experience. The Clock has a unique cylindrical design that displays 24 of the world’s top cities in 12 different time zones. In order to move between the time zones, users need to select a particular city and then roll the Clock to see the local time in that city.

Here is a very interesting approach to a daily use object since centuries, the mirror. The mirror, also known as that object with which one spends some of his / her most personal moments, making sure everything is in best condition on their face. I have the impression though, that the designers behind “Me me me” mirror were aiming at giving this traditional object a wider use.
