Inspired by a 7-segment clock I previously made a 7-segment font (used in Jong). I thought of an idea to make this simple way of displaying our ten numerals more interesting. I came up with this clock.
It uses a number of pixels, which get every second a new destination to the position that would form needed numeral. Because they always try to move to their destination — needing time to get there —, a reordering-effect occurs.
