Crowdsourcing can lead to some incredible creations. One such creation is an interesting little website called the Human Clock. It’s an online clock that’s created with photographs from people all over the world. The website asks people to write down the current time or find it in a creative manner, snap a photograph, and then send it in.
We’ve seen a number camera-shaped pendant necklaces before, but here’s one that’s a bit different from the rest. It’s a camera pendant that doubles as a small clock that hangs around your neck.
Here’s a friendly public service announcement: remember to time on your camera before and after Daylight Savings Time (which just ended yesterday in the United States) — unlike cell phones, digital cameras generally don’t adjust their own time. If you accidentally forgot and now have a bunch of photos with timestamps that are off by an hour, there are some programs out there that can help you set things right.
Daylight saving time started this past Sunday. Unless you’ve been operating an hour off from those around you, you probably remembered to change the clocks around your home and in your car… but did you remember to change the clock in your camera?

We’ve featured a Brownie camera clock in the past, but that one was a custom-made gift. Minnesota-based artist Debra Dresler converts vintage cameras into clocks as well, but makes them available for purchase. You can buy this clock made from a Brownie Hawkeye Flash Model camera for $165 over at UncommonGoods.
For Christmas, Kyle‘s girlfriend Sarah wanted to give him something photography related, so she gutted a broken Kodak Brownie Holiday Flash camera and turned it into a one-of-a-kind clock!

Apparently inspired by the f-stop watch we posted on recently, theres a new widget for Android phones that puts an aperture clock on your home screen. Unlike the wrist watch, the widget actually adjusts the “aperture” depending on what time it is, though it refreshes every half hour to save battery life. The bad news is that this dash of geekery comes at a price — the app costs $1.05 over at AppBrain. Someone make a free version please.
