La Machine à Ecrire le Temps


La Machine à Ecrire le Temps (translates to The Machine that Writes the Time).  A gorgeous piece presented at Baselworld 2009.  Our first versions of the Clock prototype worked with analog time that was converted through via a digital adder to time outputs, but it never occurred to me to write it out on paper…  Reminds me of the so very cool Difference Engine printer.  [via Engaget, and sent to me by Chris Baldwin, Thanks]
