Unity Binary Clock lens displays the time in binary format in the Dash (Ubuntu 11.10 & 12.04)

Unity Binary Clock lens

Unity gathered a consistent attention across the internets, expressed in functionality-based lenses, but also, non-conventional ones that are to enrich the creativity of future Unity developers and to stress the brain for what others consider usual task.

Unity Binary Clock lens "displays the time in binary format using orange and what are technically aubergine dots", furthermore, in order to know what time is it?, you need to add up the total of the orange dots, ignoring the aubergine ones, meaning, if the first Hours category displays three orange dots (1, 2 and 5) the hour is 1+2+5=8.
Proceed in the same manner when it comes for minutes and seconds.

Add the following official PPA (Oneiric, Precise)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:markjtully/ppa
