Almost 4,000 Feet of String Wind Through This Pointlessly Complicated Pulley Clock

As far as complicated clocks go, it’s going to be hard to top Felix Vorreiter’s FLUX 1440, which displays the time using a simple pulley system, and over 3,900 feet of white string covered in what looks like random marks. However, as layers of the string align inside the clock’s various pulleys, so do those random marks, revealing the current time every minute.

It’s undeniably a unique design, but with around three-quarters-of-a-mile of string to wrangle, you better hope there isn’t a tangle in there somewhere.
