Wave Clock Exposes Nature Of Universe

By Evan Ackerman

Wave Clock

From the same designer who brought you the Time Table comes this clock that tells time with ball bearings that move around the surface to show hours and minutes, using magnets hidden in the base (kinda like the Timesphere clock). More importantly, through the use of spheres and a waveform surface, this clock illustrates one of the most important principles of physics: wave-particle duality. Not only does this clock have wave and particle components, it actually exists as wave and particle components (as does everything else in the universe). Brilliant, and surely exactly what the designer had in mind.

We’re not sure about price or availability, but if the Time Table is any indication, it’s probably just a prototype.
