This cool new Oscilloglass Ake is a stunning gravity-powered mechanical hourglass from Japan that allows you to see, hear, and even feel the passage of time. Just flip this glass and ash wood cylinder over like a normal hourglass and, instead of falling sand, a pendulum clock made of gears and discs at the top will begin to tick and slowly descend down a track for 5 minutes. If you hold it in your hands, you'll be able to feel the intricate ticking vibrations that mimic the faint heartbeat of a living creature. Time may be the proverbial fire in which we burn, but this beautiful precision object lets your senses enjoy the experience... 5 minutes at a time. Check out the video below to see it in action. Cool huh?
