I published the first public version of a clock programmed in WPF. GalaSoft’s WPF ColorClock is inspired from the original ChromaChron clock, which was a huge trend in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The clock shows the time in an original manner, with one colored area per hour. A cache rotating with 30° every hour displays the time. Of course reading the time in that manner is not perfectly accurate like a digital watch, but it’s very soothing and with a little experience it’s surprisingly easy to differentiate even small time differences.
The clock can be installed using ClickOnce (Internet Explorer only), or from this page, where more information is also available (user guide, source code…)
