Clock presents the time as math problems

MNTNT's Albert Clock is a clock that presents the hours and minutes as simple math problems. Is it annoying or engaging? Or.... both!

In standard mode, the queries change every minute. They are completely random, so even the query for the hours change, even if the result stays the same.

You can speed up this challenge so the queries change in the fastest mode every 10 seconds.

You can also download the Albert Clock as a free mobile app.

  1. Annoying if you want to know what time it is. Engaging if you have the time.

    They were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

    If I ever want a quickie divorce, I'll buy one of these for Mrs. Old.

  4. This reminds me of the drunk test that Gmail used to have. Basically, if you were sending an email late at night, the plugin would make you answer simple math problems to prove you weren't drunk.
