Kanazawa Station Water Jet Clock

at 5:25 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Crazy Hacks, Insane Equipment

John from The Hacker’s Bench has put together a selection of crazy clocks, this water clock that is located in Kanazawa Station is my favorite. It uses jets of water to either display the time or messages. If you know where we can find some more details of the build I would love to hear from you. Make sure you watch the last 5 seconds of the video to see it close-up.

Video after the jump.

    Alan, Thanks for linking my site.
    I really wish that I could have found more information about this thing. Maybe the exposure will get me some feedback. I, too, started thinking it would be cool to build something along the same lines, but man, as near as I can tell from the vid and pics that thing is a 9 X 60 matrix. That would be 540 solenoid water valves!!! Pretty darned pricy.

    Hey John,

    This is one of those projects that will stick in the back of my mind until I find a surplus deal on sprinkler solenoid valves for a quarter a piece…

    I am sure that maintenance on the unit would also not be cheap since the valves would be changing state so many times per hour.

    This is the coolest clock I’ve seen. I agree with Alan that this is one of those that will stick in your head for awhile.
