Date & Time - Binary Clock

Description: "Binary Clock Widget" is a clock that shows the time using binary numbers. It is a rather special way of telling the time, but on the other hand it should look decorative on your dashboard.

On the widgets backside there is an explanation on how to tell the time. Furthermore you can choose between, 12- and 24-hour time systems, a number of different color variantions and the clock doesn't use cpu power when dashboard is inactive.

If you are thinking: I could probably make more photorealistic bulbs, then please mail me smiley

Comments and suggestions are more than welcome!

I have the tangible version of this. I like it. My only question is: is there any way to take it out of military 24 hour time?

You mean, a way to make it use the retardedly complicated AM/PM system?

I think it's polite to let the the hours have a unique number each, instead of letting them share two and two. smiley

If there is an genuine interest I could make an update with an option for am/pm.

Very cool! I loved it! I would suggest some kind of visual separator for the three vertical pairs (say, a different shade for hours, minutes and seconds, or a different space between the three pairs, or some kind of line separating them) but it would certainly ruin the layout, so it's better to keep it the way it is.

I could do with there just being 12 numbers. make it loop 12 instead of 24. we could figure out if it was am or pm.

I would like 12 hour time. Maybe the bulbs could become darker during the pm period. (like yellow=am and blue=pm).
