Since the name sounds quite familiar, it could well have been guessed what would the clock look like? So here it is; shaped in the form of a pendulum is the Pendola Clock! So does it oscillate like a pendulum? Sure it does.
The Pendola Clock designed by Samuel Wilkinson and Joe Wentworth comprises of the clock which swings and a little helper jutting out of the wall which helps in the swinging action. The clock is equipped with sensor at its very base so that when it passes over the ‘helper’ during its motion, a magnetic pulse is generated.” “The pulse creates an attraction to the magnets set within the fixed tab. This attraction, lasting only a fraction of a second, is sufficient to maintain a continuous swing. The length of the arm is set to ensure the clock has a smooth rythmic swing of 1 second.” Watch it sway in the attached video.
“Pendola was developed for an exhibition titled Slow Tech – Designs for Digital Downtime at trend agency Protein’s exhibition space last month.”
