Hmm. Perhaps this leans more towards the art category than time telling as far as functionality, but either way it’s an interesting idea.
Kouichi Okamoto’s Water Clock tells time with water and magnets. Inside the ceramic base are 2 rotating magnets which attract 2 balls – the red one showing the hours, the white one the minutes.
Will work with any plate, glass, combination thereof or anything that can hold water.
