Local artist Bernie Rohde dropped by and demonstrated one of his unique timepieces.
Here is an excerpt from Bernies web page, now archived on the wayback machine:
“Self-styled electronics designer Bernie Rohde transforms the art of clock making with his award-winning concept in computer sculpture. Think of time in a circle, LED colors in a sunflower spiral, light diffused in polished clear acrylic. You’ve never seen anything like this…
Each clock is individually hand-made from original circuit design and programming. A microprocessor controls the LED display (light emitting diodes) with quartz crystal accuracy, without moving parts. LED ‘hands’, not numbers, clearly indicate the time. One button sets the time.”
