How many times have you stuck a stick in the ground to use as a sundial, only to realize that you still have no idea what time it is? French Etsy shop Mojoptix has solved the problem that was the Curse of Rome by 3D-printing special sundials that display the time “digitally”-if it’s between 10:00 and 16:00, that is, and you don’t mind the time being displayed in 20 minute increments!
