Weasley Clock Is Aharry Potterdiy Ers Dream
Oh how the magic of the ' Harry Potter ' fandom will never cease to amaze and delight us.
The Weasley burrow was not exactly the most imitable place in the series -- although wouldn't it be so nice to have dishes wash themselves once in a while? For serious. But there was one item of decor that is quickly making its way into the Potterphile must-have collection for any true muggle shrine: The Weasley Clock.
A few brilliant students at the University of Munich came up with a version of the Weasley Clock that actually syncs up with your smart phone's GPS tracking to let it know exactly where you're at -- and move the clock hands accordingly.Warner Bros.
OK, OK. So this might be a burglar's dream invention -- something that actually blasts your location -- and you might never be able to sneak in (or out) undetected from the 'rents again. But apart from the potential drawbacks of the device, it's pretty ~charming~ indeed.
