Dropclock - 137MB screensaver
« on: April 01, 2008, 03:36:53 AM »
I think this is a case of love / hate. What to do with 137MB? install 5 copies of windows 95? or a signle screensaver (it IS very nice) and pay $15 to register it:

Dropclock is an aesthetically intriguing motion clock screensaver. Every minute of real time is numerically expressed with heavy helvetica dropping into water in super slow-motion.

Are you sure this doesn't belong in the April Fools thread?

I downloaded it but don't really like it too much. I like my screen saver subtle and I don't like a clock that has a '6' that turns around in the water making it 14:29 instead of 14:26.

Clever idea, but a no from me.

I guess it's 137megs because everything is pre-rendered?

Would've been cooler with something real-time rendered... the demoscene could probably do it in 64kb and almost as nice looking :)

yeah its prerendered it's a bunch of swf files, one must read out the time and the others are the animations probably in flash video showing the digits.
