LED Hourglass

posted Jun 1, 06:16 AM by Puffo

Traditional hourglasses are made of glass and simply too easy to break, spilling sand all over your precious belongings. Thankfully a new form of hourglass is on the horizon that will solve all your hourglass problems. This really is invention at its finest.

The LED’s are arranged in a conical, circular design which produces the new look for the weeks old project. A Z-action accelerometer allows the device to detect its orientation and to produce the hourglass effect in the right direction. Kudos to Dhananjay Gadre and Anurag Chugh for pulling off the revisionist design. Just when we thought hourglass technology had reached its pinnacle.
