JClock VII

2015-11-14, post № 81

programming, Pygame, Python, #clock, #composite, #composite number, #factorization, #prime, #prime factorization, #prime time, #primes

This alternative clock is not really readable by human. It calculates the first 𝟣𝟦𝟦 [1] primes, assigns 𝟨𝟢 of them to every possible second, 𝟨𝟢 to every possible minute and 𝟤𝟦 to every possible hour.
Multiplying those three primes for a given time results in a composite number representing said time. Using integer factorization, you then can get the three primes back, map them to seconds, minutes and hours, and by doing so calculate the time.
