The Corpus Clock and The Chronophage
"Introduced by Dr John C.Taylor, Invenit et Fecit" - or, to translate, he invented it, and he built it. Video explaining some of the finer points of the chronophage. Stunningly beautiful.

Stephen Hawking to unveil strange new way to tell the time - Telegraph
"He calls the new version of the escapement a 'Chronophage' (time-eater) - "a fearsome beast which drives the clock, literally "eating away time". It is the largest Grasshopper escapement of any clock in the world." Stunning new timepiece for the Corpus library. Breathtakingly beautiful.
