6. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Kango Suzuki, Product Design Student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design:
"I've always been fascinated with traditional Karakuri puppets (wind-up dolls) that can write. I think even in this day and age, they're difficult to build and I wanted to focus my attention on something similar. Then I thought it would be interesting if I could come up with a design for a clock that wrote the time every minute. This is how I decided to start this project."
7. Right pan of upper part of the clock
8. Close up right pan of clock in action
9. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Kango Suzuki, Product Design Student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design:
"I started working on this project last year in April. From April to July I researched the design and structure of what I would have to build. Then in the months from August to October I worked on finalising the plans. Then in the four months from October to February I worked on making the actual clock. The most difficult part was cutting out all the wooden parts in the correct shape which I did with a band saw and was very time consuming."
10. Close up of Suzuki removing pin and clock starting
11. Wide of clock in action with Suzuki standing beside it
12. Low angle shot of clock working
13. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Kango Suzuki, Product Design Student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design:
"While I was making it, right until the very end, nobody really understood what I was up to and then, once everyone saw the final product in action, many began to say how great it was and how much they liked it. It made me very happy."
14. Various of Suzuki adjusting the clock
15. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Kango Suzuki, Product Design Student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design:
"The clock had to be able to write all numbers and the parts for writing each number correctly had to be carefully prepared. It was one thing doing the computer modelling, where everything worked well, but actually reproducing the parts by hand was tough. It took me a long time to make the parts and I had to remake some pieces over and over again."
16. Suzuki manually operating the clock
17. Close up of Suzuki manually operating the clock
18. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Kango Suzuki, Product Design Student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design:
"I sometimes wondered what I would do if I couldn't finish it. I was afraid I might not be able to graduate."
19. Suzuki checking the clock
20. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Kango Suzuki, Product Design Student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design:
"There's still a couple of problems with the clock - it's not 100 percent complete yet. Sometimes it stops, or it slows down, or it speeds up. I will be hard at work in the coming weeks to complete the project."
21. Left angle close up shot of clock working
22. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) Kango Suzuki, Product Design Student at the Tohoku University of Art and Design:
"I'm not really an outgoing person and I've always liked having something to work on on my own rather than just hanging out."
23. Wide of Suzuki sitting with his professor Isao Uehara in the lab where he built the clock

I was reminded of when that muslim activist's son brought a clock that looked like a bomb to a school in America. He didn't build anything, it was just a digital clock without a casing inside a aluminum suitcase. Anyway, school freaked out thinking it was a bomb and it really DID look like a fucking bomb.
Everyone was accused of "Islammafoobia". White guilt all around.
Obama tweeted "Cool clock Ahmed! Wanna bring it to the White House?"
This happened whilst Obama was drone striking the shit out of civilians in Iraq.
Ah the cuck old days.
hmm scale it down to a watch size. replace the wood with 14k gold and white gold. make it skeleton type watch. give cosmetic of rubies and diamonds. use black leather as the watch strap with 14k gold buckle.
patek phillip please hire this man!
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
