Obviously, the Magic Clock magically knows the the persons' locations. Just to have a backup though, we built mobile clients that can send their current location to the webserver and thus to the Magic Clock. There is an Android app and an iPhone app, both of which contain the same core functionality. The Android app runs as a service in the background and updates your location in a timed interval, whereas the iPhone app sends its location whenever the device registers to a new cell tower. On Android your location is always up-to-date and accurate. On your iPhone you can also send super-accurate and super-frequent updates by simply keeping the app open and running... Unfortunately our budget was very limited and so we had to drop our thoughts of building on an old fashioned clock. We were making plans on creating our own modern design out of acrylic glass and were somewhat unhappy about that. But thanks to a happy coincidence we found our perfect clock on Ebay Classifieds. Just an hour..
