At last my blog is back in action after being locked by the robots at Blogspot for a day!
Anyway, I've been learning Russian for the past few months and this clock looks really useful in learning time-telling (although to totally justify buying this for US$158, I have to learn German, Spanish and French as well). Any other languages e.g. Latin can also be uploaded into the clock via a PC. Available from 1 November 2007 from Art Lebedev Studio. http://store.artlebedev.com/catalog/office/verbarius/
Totally sleek in a black box shape.
