Robotic Stonehenge Clock is always busy
This awesome “digital” clock was created by Software architect Steve Norris and uses a robot arm and 14 numbered cards to display the current time. Steve obviously does not fear the coming robot apocalypse and isn’t afraid to help it along. The video shows a time update from 12:09 to 12:10.

The upside for humans is that you have an awesome clock that you want to look at, the downside for the robot is that it’s always busy. Never a minute to itself to plot our downfall as it dutifully gives you the time, which I guess is another upside for humans. The robot uses a CrustCrawler Smart Arm and a Parallax Propeller chip to do it’s thing. Consider a kind of visual interpretation of what all clocks do. Just cooler.
