Photo Caption Competition No. 19: A Horological Fairground | Quill & Pad

Believe it or not, this Rube Goldberg/Jean Tinguely – style contraption is really a galactic clock by A.H.C.I. part Miki Eleta considered BY2112ME that showcases retrograde minutes, hopping hours, day of the week, a three-dimensional moon stage, and world time. Furthermore, it’s all managed by Eleta’s own steady power gravity tourbillon with chronometer escapement.

But the inquiry I’m posing here is: the thing that may this gathering of pinion wheels be or potentially be doing in the event that it wasn’t a clock? Please leave your thoughts (fun or clever additionally welcome) in the comments.

And congrats to Mark for his Gary Larson/The Far Side – esque winning passage in a week ago’s competition about a boat abandoned in the day off.
