There really is no other way to explain it! Check it out! He explains how it works, but if you ask me - I have listened to it and really don't quite get it all, maybe you can. http://www.fark.com/cgi/vidplayer.pl?IDLink=4268607

[b]If you get this twice, it's because I already posted once, but MyBot lost it! What I SAID was, that is an awesome piece of machinery, but the comments BELOW the video are at least as interesting. I even swiped a great photo from one commentator's post, & you'll see it on my desktop when you come in today! Maggiepie[/b]

Yeah, I probably wouldn't have put something quite so ugly on it, looked like a cross between a scary lizard and a scary bug!

I was intrigued for sure. I don't usually watch videos because my internet connection is quite slow but I was definitely interested to see your clock. Never mind.

I didn't listen to the the guy describing how it works because the whole video was over four minutes long! But that really is a sweet clock. I think the cover is a LED screen that is programmed to show the time and such. I wonder how much they sell for?

If you had listened you would have discovered that it is exactly NOT a LED screen programmed to tell the time. It is a mechanical clock. The answers are all in the video.

It has LED lights in it, but it is entirely mechanical. Pretty cool tho

It was, but I'm not sure its worth it for me - because I couldn't read most of it!

LOL That clock would make sure that my headache never cleared up - in fact when it struck the hour I thought there was an alarm going off or something! lol Amazing stuff though and obviously a lot of thought, research and work gone into it! xxx

I was blown away by it! I think that is just cool - tho I wouldn't have put the ugly critter on top - it would've had to be something prettier

When it tolls out the hour, one could mistake it for a malfunction. Really weird.
