Time is Everything
From sundials, hourglass and pendulum clocks to analog, digital and atomic clocks, the timepiece boasts a fascinating story of evolution. Time is everything. We keep, chase and manage time and cannot imagine what our lives would be without time keeping devices. Here are a few fun facts about clocks and timekeeping:
- The time that is used for the global internet is based on a clock that was created in an institute in Colorado. This clock is so accurate that it is not supposed to lose or gain a single second in 20 million years.
- A young, aspiring designer from Norway has created a clock that knits a scarf 24 hours a day and completes it in 365 days. Producing one scarf each year, this clock is called the 365 Knitting Clock.
- The word “o’clock” is derived from “stroke of the clock” which was a 15th century reference to the medieval mechanical clocks.
- The invention of the pendulum clock in 1656 increased the accuracy of clocks from a deviation of 15 minutes a day to just 15 seconds a day.
- Before the introduction of alarm clocks, countries such as Great Britain had a professional called “knocker-upper”. The knocker-ups used to go knocking on the doors or windows of the houses of industrial workers who had to be woken up in time for their varying work shifts.
