I was fascinated by Joo on Thingiverse's creation of a whiteboard marker plot clock. It used servos, a whiteboard marker, and even an eraser to draw the time!  This got me thinking thought of alternatives ways to do recreate this effect! I came up with the idea to do it with glow in the dark material and UV lights. I bought a UV laser, and cut some acrylic at my local makerspace.

Here's the first iteration of my glow clock :)!
