It’s the student project that rivals all other student projects – a Japanese university student has created an incredibly intricate, hand-carved wooden clock that writes the time on a magnetic drawing board every minute.

With over 400 moving wooden parts, the clock is the brainchild of Suzuki Kango, a 22-year-old student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design in Japan. It took him six months to construct the clock, according to Alphr.

The clock features four magnetic stylus pens that automatically write the time on the magnetic board every minute in the 24-hour format. During the update, the previous time is seamlessly erased and a new one written – the transition can be described as mesmerizing.

Here’s another look at the clock, tweeted by Kango himself.

Called the “Plock”, the device is Kango’s senior thesis exhibition project – and no doubt he has earned a spectacular grade.
