    The Grasshopper Escapement is a chronophage, a fascinating mechanism utilizing counterweights, engagement/disengagement, a bit of friction, ultimately driven by the toothed wheel which it governs.

    While not designed-by it was presented at the U. of Cambridge on Sept. 19, 2008 by Stephen Hawking. http://vimeo.com/1897177?pg=embed&sec=1897177

    That is extremely cool. I'm a Newtonian kinda guy myself, so mechanical oddities are delightful.

    Once I got a good understanding of my relatives, I decided to forgo any further study of Relativity. ; -)
