Cool Thing: Colour Clock

with one comment

You know HTML, right? Simply put, it’s a browser clock that uses hexidecimal color codes to correspond with the time on your system. It takes the current time and converts it to a hex code, which displays behind the time in the center, ever-changing. It’s fairly hypnotic. If you own a Mac, you can download a screensaver of it as well.

Nothing will ever beat #FF9933, though. Find the corresponding time for that, and you win a prize!

  1. Seems to work scalar. As in, for hours 24 corresponds to 256 to FF, while for minutes or seconds it would be 60.

    So for FF9933:
    FF = 256 = 24
    99 = 153 = 35.85~
    33 = 51 = 11.95~

    or 24:36:12
