McIntosh Mantle Clock looks like an amp

There are some products out there that are unique and interesting in their own way. When that item runs a $1500 price tag, you expect it to be top of the line with lots of attention to detail. The McIntosh MCLK12 Mantle Clock owns up to most all of the expectations you could have for a clock that resembles an amp.

This clock is built to the exact same size as the faceplate and meters of the actual amps, and light greens and blues emanate from the controls and meters. The “hands” of the clock have been separated into minutes and hours in different meters. Once the hand has reached the end of the hour, it will zip back to it’s starting place. If you have the dough burning a hole in your pocket, and appreciate this clock enough, I would go for it. Otherwise, this is still just a clock, and you can buy a cheaper one in a convenience store if the ability to tell the time is all you need.

    Or, you could search for "Arduino meter clock" and make one for a fraction of the price.
