Chronophage (Time Eater)

I read about this clock a couple of weeks ago in the newspaper and found the story fascinating.

The inventor of this “timepiece” is John C. Taylor and he wanted to depict the passage of time in a different way from traditional clocks.  I think he succeeded!  You know how time flies when you are enjoying yourself but drags when things are horrible?  Taylor wanted to somehow build that feeling into this clock so observers would stop and think about how they are using their precious, limited amount of time.

I know I will savor that extra hour of sleep tomorrow morning.  Getting up at 5:15 has been one of the more challenging aspects of going back to work.  And it will no longer be dark for my entire commute to work!  Watch the video to learn more about the clock and how it works.
