Meter Clock

For some reason, I like display technologies, and clocks are often a good excuse to experiment with them. I'd had this idea for a clock using panel meters but unfortunately it never got off the ground, so when I chanced upon a discarded battery tester from an alarm panel, I knew I needed to try again. It makes a lovely sound when it advances minutes, and the day meter's hand sweeps continuously across the face. See the pictures and video below for more!
