Buttonless Clock – Shake & Set
Button-less digital clocks, are a simple idea, there are may different ways they could be achieved. I believe that one of the best ways to do this is to use an accelerometer. Shaking the clock would change its mode, preparing it to set the time. Rotating the clock foreword and backward to change the time, as if pouring something into and out of the clock. One of the problems with buttons in clocks now is that they have to be held down to change the time, which often has an acceleration to how the time changes, this method would allow the time to be changed based on the level of rotation.
