MACH ART Paradox Reverse Flowing Hourglass Just Might Turn Back Time

MACH ART Paradox Reverse Flowing Hourglass Just Might Turn Back Time

By Andrew Liszewski

You can file this one under desk crap, but as desk crap goes, it’s a rather clever combination of an hourglass ‘sand’ timer and those immiscible liquid devices. Instead of sand, this hourglass timer, which runs for about 30 minutes, uses an orange colored liquid that is lighter than the clear liquid, so when flipped upside down the hourglass appears to run in reverse. The sand effect is more convincing if you give the thing a healthy shake before flipping it so that thousands of tiny bubbles are created, and though I’m no scientist, I’m pretty sure if you use it during a lightning storm, or on the day of the equinox, it will reverse time. Get it from the Implex Online Store for about $36. (¥3,150)

    That has potential to be the next thing I stare at, at work all day long… Although the whole reversing time thing is very unappealing for a work desk..
