At last year's Design Miami, we were absolutely taken with designer of the year Maarten Baas's awesome "Real Time" clock project. In one memorable installation, he had a person, stationed inside a cabinet, who manually painted in the numbers of a digital clocks as the time changed. Now you can get your own Analog Digital Clock on your iPhone for just 99 cents [iTunes Store link].
The Dutch designer announced the app at this year's Milan Design Week, and it perhaps illustrates a possible future for artists and designers working with technology. Is it possible to imagine a time when more artists sell projects such as iPhone apps directly to the public at affordable prices rather than selling one-offs for thousands of dollars to richie-rich collectors? Would you be willing to collect digital art on your iPhone like you collect MP3s?
