For £1,000,000,000, I expected the Corpus Clock — ostensibly the world's strangest clock — to be stranger. It's still pretty strange, I guess: a giant grasshopper and 60 illuminated slits cut into its face that tell the time. It's sort of like what kind of watch Lewis Carroll would design if he got a job with Tokyo Flash.
Update: Times Online has more, including a surreal image of the Chronophage's creator polishing the suspended metal droplet at the center of the clock. – JJCambridge reveals the time-eater, Chronophage, devourer of hours [Times Online]
