It's an analog clock displaying the system-time. "So what?", you might say, "There are about 1.023.493 of those already out there!". Indeed there are and probably some more, but this one is a bit different.
It leverages the new visual features offered by Xorg 6.9/7.0 in combination with a compositing-manager (e.g. like xcompmgr), gtk+ 2.8.x and cairo 1.0.2 to produce a time-display with pretty-pixels.
