Plock: Wooden Machine That Writes down the Time [Video]

This machine is called the Plock. What does it do beside looking fancy and steampunk-ish? The Japanese student Kango Suzuki, of the Tohoku University of Art and Design, created this machine to write down the time. It works similar to a normal clock but instead of displaying the time on a digital display or an analogue dial, the mostly wooden components, control a pen that “hand-writes” the time onto an etch-a-sketch-like board and then erases it before writing down the new time again. Very sleek design, watch this space!
