Print-and-fold vertical sundial generator

Neat! This website has a Google maps object that lets you select a particular wall of a particular building on the face of the Earth, and then generates a custom sundial accurate for that latitude and longitude that you can print, cut, fold, and attach. Haven’t tried it yet, so I can’t vouch, but a cool idea in any case. [via Hacked Gadgets]

    I love print and fold stuff, and this is really cool because there’s a hint of personalization, but the idea is so simple.
