Clock Counts Down to the End of the World

When I came across the Life Clock a few days back, I thought that the idea of a clock that gradually ticked away the years of your life was a wee bit morbid. Here’s another timepiece that’ll have you thinking even more happy thoughts.

Big Crunch End of the World Clock

Artist Gianni Motti’s Big Crunch clock is gradually counting down the approximately five billion years we have left until the sun blows up. The 20 digit LED display (pictured) began counting down back in 2005, so the way I figure it, we have somewhere around 4,999,999,991 years to go. Ironically, the clock runs on solar energy, so the same power source that gives it life will ultimately be its demise.

On the plus side, the entire clock will surely fail and disintegrate billions of years before it’s blown to smithereens by exploding solar gases. Now doesn’t that make you feel better?
