The Beat Goes On

This kinetic clock features a heart that seems to beat with each passing second. The effect is made by the magic of a phenomenon called moiré, where intersecting patterns simulate motion. To create a kinegram—the illusion of movement in a still graphic image—the moiré effect is manipulated in a pre-motion-picture form of animation. Here, a perforated overlay turns independently of the clock mechanism, making a mesmerizing kinegram of a beating red heart underneath. Uses one D battery (not included). Designed by Zoltan Kecskemeti in Budapest; made in China.

By day, Hungarian Zoltan Kecskemeti is a 3D artist for video games and animated movies. By night (or whenever his spare time happens to be), he focuses on his own ideas and visualizes designs like the kinegram clock. It started with an idea, then he created a prototype and uploaded a video to YouTube. A clock manufacturer saw the video, and they have been working together ever since.
