Some trippy Brits made one of the coolest clocks I have ever seen.

Instead of a pair of boring hands and a second hand, the clock has just one ball. As the day progresses, the ball stays rolls along as the face of the spiral-shaped clock turns. After 12 hours, the ball falls through an opening at the middle and to the bottom to start all over again.

I would really love to have one of these things, but since the designer and his buddies make them in their “flat,” it’s considered art and comes with a 350 pound ($540) price tag.

Check out a BBC show’s visit to the Aspiral clock factory.

Go to 1:25 for a timelapse of the clock in action if you’re in a hurry.
