Are you smart enough to read this weird Fibonacci clock?

Are you smart enough to read this weird Fibonacci clock?
Philippe Chrétien

Canadian software developer Philippe Chrétien just created a clock that doesn't look like a clock at all. It looks like a box containing a confusing assortment of colors. But, if you're smart enough, you can actually use it to tell time.

The clock tells time using a mathematical number sequence known as the Fibonnaci Sequence.

Basically, you start with a pair of ones and then add them together to make two. The sequence then continues by taking each new number and adding on the one before.

So, the sequence would start 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144. If that is already starting to sound complicated, wait until you try telling time with it.
