Jason Allemann is sharing his newest creation – a custom designed working ball clock built entirely using LEGO parts – with YouTube. Because when cellphones, analog, and digital get you down, never forget that you can always turn to LEGOs.
Jason writes, “For those that have noticed, no it does not keep accurate time in the video. I just wanted to show off the mechanical components of the clock. In the video it is running off of a standard LEGO 9V motor, which ends up picking up a ball every 55 seconds. In order to keep accurate time, an actual timing motor/controller has to be used. This could be easily done using the LEGO mindstorms system.”
Who needs accuracy anyway? As long as it looks cool, right?
