Planetary Orbit Clock does the ticking thing all fancy like


For all the nifty timepieces we've spotted over the years, the truth of the matter is that our cellphone, computer and microwave clocks do a solid 99 percent of our time telling around the Engadget HQ. However, that doesn't seem to have slowed these inventive clock makers one bit. The Planetary Orbit Clock reads just like a normal clock from above, but from any other angle appears to be a fairly random assortment of spheres in orbit -- perpetual motion style. It's hard to imagine us actually standing up to see what time it is with any level of regularity, but we suppose the conversation or three this thing might spark could be worth the 3,990 Yen (about $34 US) being asked for it.
