Inspired by motion capture technology, the MOCAP bamboo clock creates an optical illusion when you walk around it.

The ‘MOCAP‘ bamboo wall clock designed by J.P.Meulendijks for Plankton was inspired by motion capture technology. The clock’s numbers are clear and visible when the viewer stands in front of it. However, if they look at it from a different angle, they seem to dissolve and fall apart into floating white balls.

The wall clock aims to catch your eye by changing shape when you walk around it. This optical illusion results in a “striking and intriguing piece of wall art.”

The clock face is finished in matted black, causing the bright white balls to seemingly float in mid-air, and the hands are finished in glossy black so they are subtly visible against the background. MOCAP is available to order online for €186 ($247). You can see the clock’s numbers dissolving in the video below:
