What time is it?

We laughed the other day because a teenager actually came into the library, looked at the clock in front of the desk and told her friend what time it was!!! This is a very rare occurrence in our library, and one which gives us hope for the next generation, albeit slight.  When we are asked the time, we often motion to the clock, but rarely can someone in their teens tell the time.  It is an old-fashioned analog clock with actually working hands and numbers, not the digital kind, and we find that this causes much confusion amongst the high-schoolers.

But maybe we all view time differently, so maybe we should all have our own types of clocks. What about one of these great designs:
