Real time clocks are powered by humans

Craft & Design

Already have every kind of clock imaginable? How about a human powered one? Well, then you might want to check out the REAL TIME project by designer Maarten Baas. Rather than using a motor to turn some dials, or a computer to blink LEDs on and off, his creations have a human inside of them who redraws the clock every minute or so. My only question is, how do the humans know what time it is? [via MoCo Loco]

    Most tedious job ever. I wouldn’t make it more than 3 days, 16 hours, 3 minutes, 54 seconds.
    Only the artist that came up with this deserves to “power” it.
