This is so silly it's almost funny. Firstly, the digit-colour idea is not much smaller then a normal digital clock. In fact it only saves on one digit. You don't need two digits for the hour. You could easily use 0 for 10, A for 11 and B for 12 or whatever. Simple and much easier to learn then the different colours. The moon idea is even sillier. I'm not particularly sure how it saves space over a digital clock. Perhaps it could save space over a analog clock but I doubt it. The key flaw however, other then it's complexity is that it'll be rather difficult for someone to accurately tell the time. Increasingly, people are wanting to know the time fairly accurately for one reason or other. With this clock, I doubt people will be able to tell whether it's 10:10 or 10:15.

Let me suggest the first admin reading the above blanks the present talk page ; we are not on a blog and the above brings no matters on improving the article already printed on PDF. 14:03, 15 October 2006 (UTC)[]

Might cause some confusion[edit]

"Hey pal, you got the time?" "Sure, let's's purple new-moon, on the dot." "..."
