The Colour Clock

This digital clock screensaver translates the current time into a hexadecimal color code. Hours are mapped to red, minutes to green and seconds to blue channels, so a new color code is generated every second. The background color is continually adjusted to the calculated color, and the hexadecimal code is shown just below the time, both displayed in a bold, white font. You can, however, opt to show only the time or only the color.

I can't seem to find the ActiveX component required to use this screensaver, but it looks very promising!

This is so cool!
I use Windows 10 and it works :D

Using Windows 10, I don't know how to get it to run, sadly! I love the color clock in the browser, but my screen just won't save :(

by Kam on July 8, 2016

Very cool and lots of customisation to make it exactly what you want.
