Here is a clock that will take you back straight to your school days when you used to gape at the local museum’s big Time machine or even at the big grandfather clock. How about having one in your living room and spending hours watching it tick on? Yes, all that is possible with the new Time Machine Clock, which will take you back to the mechanical timekeeping era. The Time Machine clock is basically an electromechanical device which keeps time with chrome ball bearings. It uses the chrome ball bearings on an elaborate course which is connected to a spindle that counts time by releasing one ball bearing every second. Every five minutes, a five minute ball is released and after 12 five minute balls, a one hour ball is released.
This complex piece of mechanical trickery works flawlessly to tell time the old way. To run this mechanical wonder, you need to plonk in a couple of energizer batteries. The clock is a great way to destress after a hard days work, just like fish watching, simply by watching the ball bearings’ synchronized symphony minute after minute and even coming to appreciate the mechanical side of life. This ideal mantelpiece adornment is not too heavy on the pocket and sells at a tad less than 40 British pounds, Â£39.99 to be spot on.
