Hour by Hour, grain by grain

One of my favourite words in Italian is clessidra, meaning hourglass, from the Greek klepsydra, meaning water clock.

Well, this is now my favourite clessidra: Marc Newson’s Ikepod Hourglass. It is a 60-minute counter, measuring 265 x 300 x 3 mm, and the ‘sand’ is carbon or nickel plated nanoballs.

For some other photos and a review see here. While my heart says that I have to have one, my head (and other half) says, Lear-like: never, never, never, never, never.
