The digital sundial

The digital sundial

The sun is the simplest and most natural timekeeper we know. Sundials are therefore the oldest timekeepers known to mankind. The time is read from the length or direction of the shadow. The shadow caster (gnomon) can take the most varied forms: a rod, a thread, a straight edge, a giant obelisk or simply the shape of man himself reading the time by his own shadow.

The digital sundial shows solar time as well as normal time (CET) and even summer time (CEST). The digits are projected onto a reading field by the sun. And so, with a little wink, we may say that this solar chronometer, the epitome of analogue time display, has arrived in the digital age. With a reading accuracy of 5 minutes, it is one of the most accurate sundials in the world. Universally adjustable to all locations between Oslo and Cairo.
