Alternate Clock Designs

Three different clocks

A day has 24 hours in it. That’s 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds. If you wonder why Americans don’t understand the need for using the metric system then ask yourself why you use this inconsistent time measurement system.

What if we could design a better time system that is easier to read and convert between units? Would it still have the same number of hours, minutes or seconds in a day?

Explore the designs.

    I’ll have to wear my 24 hour watch to our next game night!

    I would love a “standalone” html decimal clock but I have no programming abilities. Could you advise me on how to do that?

    When you say standalone what do you mean exactly? If I give you a chunk of HTML and JavaScript are you able to embed that in a page?
