The reality of Stefan Scholl

Binary Clock in the Sidebar

I have a binary wristwatch and had a simple binary clock in the sidebar for some time (no pun intended) now.

But now it looks a bit more like the real watch.

The first row shows the hours and the second row the minutes. It's 11:46 on this picture. 8 + 2 + 1 hours, 32 + 8 + 4 + 2 minutes.

It gets refreshed every minute via JavaScript. I'm using the <canvas> element of HTML 5. I wanted to give it a try for some time now.

It's supported by all current browsers, tested on MacOS X, Linux, and Windows XP.

MacOS X:
  • Firefox 3.0.8

Update: Removed after change of blogging software

Yes, that's me
