*** TIME MACHINE CLOCK ***
The Time Machine Clock is a kinetic display device that eschews the normal conventions of a timepiece - hands, to you and me - and instead replaces them with an altogether more elaborate means of saying 'ten past two'. As ever with complex machinery, there's beauty in the telling of the story. The destination is important, but there is equal joy to be found in the journey. This remarkable device deploys dozens of shiny chrome ball bearings along an elaborate course to enable the telling of the time. A central spindle counts the seconds, releasing a ball every minute. Once five minutes is reached, the five minute ball is released. These balls accumulate until 12 have been released, whereupon the one hour ball is set free and rolls into place. This continues on the hour, every hour. Along the way, a precision movement mechanism ensures complete accuracy, so you can always trust the time by trusting the balls. The overall effect is a continually moving, ever changing, modern mechanical marvel that will never cease to amaze. Hour, minute and second indicators mark out the time, which is told by simply counting the balls contained in the relevant channels. Meanwhile, a transparent acrylic display case keeps small hands away, ensuring that time ticks on remorselessly. Beautiful.
The Black Time Machine is a masterpiece in design, the time machine becomes the centerpiece of any room or office.
Use metal balls to keep track of time!
It uses 32 chrome balls and a rotating seconds disc to accurately record the passage of time with a fascinating construction of interlinking tracks. Every minute a ball transfer arm picks up another chrome ball lifting it to drop on the top track and roll down.
It is supplied with a transparent acrylic display case and shows the hours, minutes on tracks and a seconds indicator.
The Time Machine Clock's timeless design (please forgive the pun!) will entertain and amaze for years as time rolls.
'Is this the most exciting timepiece ever? The Time Machine is a constantly moving sculpture of black and chrome that is guaranteed to become a conversation piece in any home or office. Those in the know can tell the time at a glance, others will have to work it out from the complex movement of ball bearings, cogs and levers.
