Linear clock shows time on a ruler
posted December 21 2010 6:14.54 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Sometimes, thinking unconventional produces impressive things. Youtube user euphyscott thought that time is not circular, but linear. The result was an unconventional linear clock that he made. The hours and minutes are shown on a linear ruller with pointers moving with motors left and right. When the ruler ends, they return to home position to start count again. The following video is at x60 speed, so the minutes pointer shows actually seconds.
