is here that I discovered a most unusual clock. It was actually a clock

before displaying the correct time.
was developed with customized software controlled by an iPad. There were
three versions of the clock on display by the gallery. A white version
used 24 clocks and a black version that used 96 clocks. They range in
price from 33,000 to 96,000 euro ($45,227 to $131,500). Below is a video
of the clock in action.
