Unless you're adept at reading binary system time, this desktop clock application will only provide entertainment value. Its simple interface displays a real-time system clock using the binary system. Choose Tools from the main menu to reveal this application's settings options, including the ability to select 12- or 24-hour formats, change the color and layout of the clock's LED display, and create alarms. However, the alarm feature is limited, as you can't tie in your favorite audio files or create personal reminders. Thankfully, a helpful documentation file is packaged for users new to binary. This clock-enhancement utility doesn't really serve much of a practical purpose; still, since it's free, Binary Clock might be worth a look as a conversation starter for those peeking at your desktop.

BinaryClock shows the time as a series of binary bits. It also provides the ability to set alarms, customize the color of the LED lights, and change the way the time is shown. You can also choose a time format to display the time in (i. e. 12h or 24h).
