…It’s Things Thursday: Time Machine?

Time Machine

It’s hard to imagine a clock that’s cooler than the Time Machine.

Instead of hands, the Time Machine drops a chrome ball down a wooden track every sixty seconds. As the balls stack up, the numbers that they come to rest next to tell the time.

It’s loud, it’s imprecise, and it’s severely over complicated, but I challenge you to try and find a more interesting way of counting off the minutes.
