Here’s something you don’t see everyday – Jameson Robert Gagnepain (a.k.a. jameson42), an avid CC fan, has teamed up with his girlfriend (hm, why does that sound familiar) and come up with a remarkable clock for their house. Or house for their clock… I’m starting to get confused here.
Anyway, this little MOC serves a wonderful purpose with the clock mechanism integrated within it. By using a nice clean design and adding functionality to it, Jameson and his girlfriend have created a unique piece of home decoration which will surely be applauded by their AFOL guests.
Looks like a house, works like a Swiss watch.
I can’t help but wonder what kind of LEGO-made home decoration is up next!
TheBrickster, let’s take a closer look at this amazing invention. Understanding from ancient China History, this is the first Chinese Water Clock which was completed in 125 AD by an outstanding talented scholar in the Han Dynasty by the name of Zhang Heng. The water clock is supposed to aid astronomers in their star observation and calendar computations.
This Chinese Water Clock is also known as the Armillary sphere that could represent the Celestial sphere. Engineers and Astronomers such as oldhamk contributed to the very success to its concluding design of this magnificent water clock.
Shall we take a walk inside and observe these integrated gears from beneath and marvel at this superb science creation from the Chinese.
