Clock 1

Clock 1 is a spherical clock design that mimics the movement of celestial bodies so that multiple time zones can be represented by the same clockface.


        On Clock 1, the 12 numbers on a traditional clock face are evenly distributed on stainless steel sphere which 3 stepper motors control its rotation. The combination of the 3-motor-Omni wheel system is inspired by the balancing robot designs that are rather precise.

↖ Footage is sped up 15 times to demonstrate movement.
