Mechanical Alarm Clock

This digital mechanical alarm clock features a “series of cryptic looking numeric black on white segments” that “gradually move into position within a black masking box to reveal the current time.” Video after the break. Click here for one more picture.

As time passes, the sliders climb to the top, until the 9th digit on any given position hits. After that, the mechanism disengages and drops the slider all the way back to the zero position.
