    A very innovative synthesis of ancient and modern technologies. The very ancient technology of sundials has been enhanced with a modern technology website that provides further background information on sundials and astronomy. Together, the sundial and the website can be conveniently used as pedagogical tools for teaching of Earth and Solar motions etc.
    The access to the website vis QR code is in keeping with the present ubiquitous smartphones in the hands of almost everyone nowadays.
