Recycle Years of Broken Hard Drives into a Surprisingly Non-Dorky Clock

Illustration for article titled Recycle Years of Broken Hard Drives into a Surprisingly Non-Dorky Clock

Instructables has posted a guide to breaking down 3.5" hard drives and creating a wall clock out of the pieces. The guide calls for a bunch of the washers used to separate hard drive platters as well as the innards of a cheapie clock the builder had lying around. It's a pretty easy project, but what's remarkable is how cool it looks by the end. You wouldn't know it's made of hard drives; it just looks like an industrial sort of sculpture that tells time.

Sooo... how do you actually tell what time this clock is?

Or rather, if you turn it upside down by mistake, can you flip it back? (Okay, the big cogwheel-thingamajig appears to be the twelve, but let's say I didn't know that.)
