Why on Earth one would want a mercury hourglass? [Hack]
posted March 19 2013 20:36.47 by Giorgos Lazaridis

A rather strange and IMHO kinda failed hack is shown in the following video. This guy got a cheap ebay sand hourglass and managed to take out the sand and replace it with... mercury... Apart from "original" and "weird", this hourglass is dangerous and ineffective. Nevertheless, its worth to watch this video.

    • I had a little acrylic hourglass of mercury. It was awesome and I was always playing with it until my parents took it away. T-T

    • @Giorgos Lazaridis "@ Joe The concept is failure" that's it. That's your reasoning? There it is, working, handled safely. I don't think concept failure means what you think it means.
