LEGO aficionado Jason Allemann has built a simple, yet clever ‘rolling ball clock’ out of LEGO bricks and little glass balls.

This unusual clock tells the time with the number of balls that have been deposited in each tier—the bottom tier represents the hours, while the middle and top tiers track ten minutes and a minute increments respectively.

At noon and midnight, all the balls empty into the reservoir to await the next cycle of 12 hours.


Allemann explains how his LEGO clock works in the video below:
