Sense of Science and Technology full 3d print of the sundial in the shadow of time

Different from general sundial which is determined by the shadow position , digital sundial in the shadows with a number of displays the current time, looks like a full sense of science and technology.559

Our wise ancestors long ago learned to use the sun’s position to tell the time, and based on it, invente the sundial, and as human timing technology continues to progress, the sundial is gradually being replaced by other timing instruments, watches and clocks.But lately, a French engineer named Mojoptix invented a digital sundial, and the sundial is determined by the shadow position at different way, digital sundial in the shadows with a number of displays the current time, looks like a full sense of science and technology.Popularity of 3d printing, we can  feel the power of science and technology development. Even cheap 3d pens can make us feel Science and Technology bring surprise to people. 561

It is important to note, for the sun to become a digital time ” backlight ” may not be easy, you need to take into account the sundial a variety of factors such as location, and light direction of the sun can eventually be calculated and builds accurate internal model, and 3d prints used for making such a complex structure that’s perfect.But it is a pity because of limited conditions, the digital sundial can only be used between 10 o’clock in the morning and 4 o’clock  in the afternoon, and the minimum time interval is 20 minutes, you know, change of position of the sun within 1 minutes is really minimal.In addition, Mojoptix also said the digital sundial has landed his own shop,the entire production process takes about 35 hours.558
