The Roller Clock Keeps Track of Time Using Rolling Ball Bearings

Analog and digital clocks move over—the Roller Clock is the newest and most unique time-tracking piece available to date. This device keeps track of time using a series of ball bearings that move around the tunneled areas to indicate the time down to the exact minute.

This interesting device functions by using three sets of tracks: one for hours, another for five minute intervals, and last one that clicks between these five minute times to know the precise time of the day. As each minute passes, the clock is able to add and subtract balls from different tracks to set these exact numerations. What is also interesting is that there are almost always visible bearings moving.

For those who are looking for a new desk piece, a conversation starter, or an amazingly unique gift for that special someone, consider the Roller Clock. It is available online for only $50.
