Created by the design company Can You Imagine, the Time Machine Tabletop Clock gives you a way to visualize time as it passes.

Time is not as linear as we may think, demonstrated by this decorative contraption that measures time and gives you a whole new way to look at it. When you turn on the mechanism, the chrome balls of this clock start rolling very slowly in a downward spiral. As each minute passes, one of the balls will be dropped onto the next rung, showing exactly how long it takes to get from one point to the next.

Not just a visual show, the Time Machine Tabletop Clock also tells you the time, showing the hour and minute based on how many balls are stacked on each rung.
