Some Other Amazing Clocks
|The hourglass clock above provides an
automated hourglass. An electric eye senses when the sand has stopped
flowing and triggers a circuit that rotates the hand holding the
hourglass. Wooden tabs on each end of the hourglass push a lever to
update the hour display.
|The Golf Ball clock has a pulley system that lifts a golf ball each minute to the top. It rolls down a copper track to the shoe. The shoe gives it a kick and it continues on its way where it mechanically triggers the minutes display to update by a minute. From there it goes through some fancy looping and is finally slowed down by some wind chimes to sit and await its next trip.|
|The hand carved hand points at the minutes.|
We hope that you have gotten a "kick" out of this clock and all of the Amazing Clocks of Rick Stanley.
