Product Description

Verbarius is the first clock in the world that tells time the way people do. It has five preloaded languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Russian. You can easily upload any additional language you like-from Latin to Eskimoan-using the USB port.
The clock spells out time differently every minute. It's either forty-five minutes past four, or fifteen minutes to five, or four forty-five, or a quarter to five.

Verbarius requires a 110/220 V main power supply source.
In case of power failure the clock has a backup battery.

Dimensions (W×H×D): 7.9"×2.8"×1.7" (200×70×42 mm)
Power supply cord, USB connector, CR2032 battery and 512MB SD card included.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality compared to the price April 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
When you look at the price and the image of the clock and the nice box and the sleek design, you would expect a nice screen, but your expectations will shatter when you plug it in, and find out that the screen has a very poor brightness and contrast. Even after adjusting the brightness and contrast...

It is not worth the price you pay... very nice idea and design... and very cheap implementation and use of parts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Much smaller than thought/not practical September 16, 2011

Verbarius electronic clock


1. small - about the size of your air con control beeper. We put it on the tv console and could not see the words to tell the time at all while watching tv. It is strictly a desktop clock.
2. not readable from an angle, despite me reversing it to white background with black words.
3. hard to tell time in words as opposed to looking at numbers or the hands on a clock.


1. different, talking point
2. tells time in other languages.

Conclusion: If you, like me, reads it in English, then there are cheaper, better clocks out there which serve the function of time telling better and more visibly. For example, Oregon Scientific Philippe Starcke clock. MUCH bigger font and much bigger clock while still sexy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice twist on a desktop clock March 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
The Verbarius clock is as advertised, a nice twist on a desktop clock. It can be powered either by USB or an (included) 110/220 AC adapter. The adapter includes a set of travel plugs. The clock can be switched from white on black to black on white, and the screen brightness and view angle can be adjusted. The pictures make it seem a little larger than it is in reality, but it is still a nice sized brick. The packaging is nice, as one would expect from a studio like Art Lebedev.

The only thing I don't like is one of the time formats. At 8:06 pm, for example, it said "eight six p.m." in one of the time formats. It would have been better had it said "eight o' six p.m.".

The USB power cable plugs into the back, making it a little difficult to hang on the wall. It's intended to be a desk clock more than a wall clock.
