Artist Tom Schofield Created a Real-Time Doomsday Clock

In case there are any neurotic people who absolutely need to know when the world could possibly collapse in on itself, artist Tom Schofield has created a real version of the dreaded doomsday clock.

Also known as the Neurotic Armageddon Indicator, this clock is hooked up to computer software that tracks the actual disaster tracker created by the 'Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.' Recording data from possible nuclear war outbreaks and other disastrous events, the scientists constantly update the clock to reflect how much time we have left on Earth. As this symbolic display of apocalyptic countdown demonstrates, the fear of global destruction is still going strong.

Not the best device for the truly neurotic, because according to this doomsday clock, the world is over just before midnight.
