The Google Earth Clock
First there was Rhett Dashwood - Google Maps Typography, in which Rhett Dashwood scoured Google Maps to find all the letters of the alphabet in geographical features found in satellite view.
Then came the Google Maps Typewriter, an application that lets you type in words and see them represented with, yes you guessed it, letters of the alphabet found on Google Maps.
Now we have the Google Earth Clock! Yes, it's a digital clock assembled from satellite views of Earth. The Google Earth clock uses the Google Earth browser plug-in to show the current time. Just load up the page and watch as the clock loads different Google Earth views so that it always shows the current time.
