3D Printed Sundial Catches Digital Rays

A new device by French artist Mojoptix combines an age-old time-telling device with 3D printing technology. On the sundial, a small plastic piece called a gnomon is printed with miniature holes to create dots of light to form the shadow of a digital clock face. While the sundial does have some limitations, only showing time in increments of 20 minutes, it’s certainly impressive to see a digital interface created from the sun’s shadows.
