When it comes to innovation, a sundial is not precisely cutting edge. This example is an different. Applying the latest 3D printing innovation and a desktop version, French maker Mojoptix has created a deceptively easy digital sundial that lets light through perfectly angled holes to write out the time of 10:00 to 16:00 in 20 minute increments on the surface at a lower place.
In the spirit of maker culture, Mojoptix has shared a guide detailing precisely how his sundial works, how it was created and how to create one by yourself in the cartoon filled video down at a lower place. He’s in addition shared the files necessary to print your own (in a thing around 30 hours) over on Thingiverse.
Don’t have your own 3D printing device? You can purchase a consume digital sundial on Etsy for only €69.00.
Here’s a timelapse of the sundial in action:
