File this under: ” Creative Uses for LEDs” A student from NSIT (Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology) created this nifty LED hourglass that is basically a 3D version of its real-life counterpart. Continue reading for a video.

In its current state, the LED hourglass less-than-accurately imitates falling sand, with a Z-axis accelerometer able to detect when it’s been flipped over (we’re guessing that top bit detaches). Planned improvements include a more accurate LED lighting pattern, and enclosing the whole thing in a perspex tube to make it a little more presentable
