Binary Timepiece

by Alexander Rose - Twitter: @zander on November 15th, 02007

This years winner of the National Watch and Clock Collectors People’s Choice award is a clock made of wood that uses a binary movement by David Holmes. It is a very cool design and a totally different take on the use of binary systems in a clock than Danny Hillis‘.  You can see a WMV video of it in operation. Apparently they are made to order and sell in the $5000 range, you can also see more on how it works here.
