Verbarius brings new meaning to "telling time"

And still this whole " finding more difficult ways to tell time " train just keeps on rolling. This time we're appealing to that breed of people who just have a burning need to spend a ridiculous amount of money on something that looks trendy. You know who I mean.

So it's little surprise that the clock in question comes from the mind of the Art. Lebedev Studio, best known for their Optimus line of products. The Verbarius tells you the timeā€”but not in numbers, oh no. That would be far too easy. Every time you "ask" it to tell you the time (via a button or something, one presumes), it will write out the time as something like "forty-five minutes past five," or "fifteen minutes to six," or "quarter 'til never ." By default, it ships with five languages: English, Russian, German, Spanish and French, though you can supposedly upload different languages via your PC (the Verbarius includes a USB cable).

Nifty, sure, but I don't exactly have $158 dollars to spare for a clock, even a gregarious one. Now if they finish that OLED keyboard, maybe we can talk. Verbarius is available for pre-order now; it'll be shipping around November 1st.
