Man-powered wooden digital clock (but is it art?)

It may be an art installation, but this “digital” clock, operated for 24 hours straight by a group of staunch Dutchmen might fare better as a desktop widget. I suppose it’s meant to say something about the nature of time, and perhaps it does, but this is a gadget blog, not the MOMA coffee shop. Go, you. Talk about it there.

You can buy it in their shop, and the DVD includes a tool that synchronizes the movie with your computer’s clock. It’s like one of those little virtual dancing ladies, but slightly more practical.
