Buddhist Bead Clock

This is a wonderful clock concept — a bead drops every 5 minutes.

I imagine that the beads are a Buddhist mala and it is used for meditation…


The artist apparently hasn’t arranged to have this manufactured, but it sure would be a wonderful addition to the [Long Now] Clock store if it were available.


I was pointed to this by this article in the NY Times on slowness.
