Enso Clock says 'om'

Geared for practitioners of yoga and meditation, clock draws its name from the Japanese word for circle, a shape that commonly symbolizes enlightenment and elegance.

The Enso Clock by Salubrion may well be the most unalarming alarm clock you'll ever find.

Geared for practitioners of yoga and meditation, it draws its name from the Japanese word for circle, a shape that commonly symbolizes enlightenment, elegance, and the universe.

Rather than counting time with minute and second hands, the $99 digital clock features a circle that slowly and unobtrusively draws itself along the perimeter of the display to mark the passing time.

The Enso Clock allows users to set sequential timers that run one after the other to compose an overall session. Instead of rousing you with a grating clang, it offers the sorts of soothing sounds you'd hear in a Zendo, such as wooden blocks or a Tingsha bell.

The little clock measures 3.8 inches in diameter and four-fifths of an inch thick and includes 2 AAA batteries, making it a well-suited travel device, as well. Thanks to Dvice for alerting us to this gadget--very quietly of course.
