Quantum Finger Clock

Inspired by discussion of FJ’s ‘Cartoon Computer’ <link>
  [vote for,

The clock uses only two fingers, and with the exception of midnight GMT they are neither up nor down (but they can be both – same time – same measured time). One finger starts from a closed position and rises to a fully extended position over a 24 hour period, then repeats - calibrated in seconds (86400). The other finger indicates time zone and alters the relative position of the first if you change time zones (are traveling). It works everywhere, it even does UT.

But don’t look at it because you will collapse the probabilities and it will become midnight GMT. You will see a fist, something pointing at you, a peace sign, or get the finger… Just be happy knowing that it keeps time perfectly.
