Binary Clock is a desktop / homescreen widget that uses a binary representation for displaying the current time.
Currently, two different "styles" are available: "classical" binary display or display as binary coded decimal (BCD).

The single bits are displayed as "LEDs".
Well, at least they should look like LEDs.
The LED color can be freely chosen.

Version 0.1.0-1 is available in extras-devel.

There you go.

Edit:
The first image shows the "classical" binary display: seconds at the bottom, minutes in the middle and hours at the top.
The least significant bits (2 to the power of 0) are at the right.

The second image shows the BCD version.
Here, the single decimal digits are shown from left to right (hh:mm:ss).
The least significant bits are at the bottom.

It's a widget.
Just tap anywhere in your screen (not on any icon or present widget) and then open the desktop-menu and select add widget.
There you should find "Binary Clock".

The ones who don't won't care.

It's a geek thing...
