Junk Space Ball Clock
A clock from outer space
Space is a vacuum, however, that doesn't mean it's empty. Using detailed imagery, this innovative handless clock depicts just how busy it really is up there!
Thousands of nuts, bolts and other debris from space missions, as well as old satellites themselves, orbit the earth at startling fast speeds – some bits and pieces hurtle along at up to 17,500mph. Add thousands of still-functioning satellites to the mix (after all, between the internet, television, telephone and sat-nav, we're more reliant on orbital technology than ever before) and it's no wonder the objects circling the atmosphere are labelled as 'space junk'! Just take a look at the clock face to get an idea of how far-reaching the debris is.
Instead of the traditional clock hands, a built-in hidden magnet moves around the clock face as the hours pass, carrying a mini magnetic moon-shaped ball with it. The 'moon' literally orbits the clock face in order to tell the time. It's an ingenious way to show the time without the use of a minute or hour hand.

Unfortunately, I'm really disappointed with the Junk Space Ball Clock! I thought this looked like a really interesting and unusual present. The dial is very dull, and you can hardly see the images on it, the surface was scratched, and above all else, it won't tell the time! The mechanism sticks and won't move. Very sad considering it was a gift.

This Junk Space Ball Clock is an amazing new application of magnets and a fantastic looking clock. I was delighted to find that the pattern of the magnet Moon looks just like the real Moon, which makes it even better. The only let down is that the background is very dark compared to the picture.

The Junk Space Ball Clock is fabulous and super accurate but it is not as bright as is shown in the picture. It looks like it may light up but it doesn't, so please be aware of that. On the whole though it is brilliant.

A really innovative idea, one that leaves you in awe at how it works. The clock itself is brilliant although the display is darker than indicated in the picture. More interesting than a standard clock, this will stand out in whatever room you place it.
