Dr. Taylor's Terrifying Timepiece! - The Corpus Clock & Chronophage

Dr. John Taylor has invented an entirely new species of clock, one with no hands at all, and a scary "grasshopper" that rides atop it!

"Known as the Corpus Clock, the machine has been invented by and designed by Dr John Taylor for Corpus Christi College Cambridge for the exterior of the college's new library building.

Dr Taylor, an inventor and horologist, has put 500,000 pounds of his own money and seven years into developing the clock, which has been inspired from a design by a clock made by the legendary John Harrison, the pioneer of longitude."

Here's the wild beastie in action!
