Uplifting Video of the Day: Building a Clock to Chime New Tune Every Day for 10,000 Years


How does one build a clock that will last 10,000 years? Well, “the golden boy of MIT” Danny Hillis and his team of engineers/generational thinkers have some answers. In fact, The Clock of the Long Now is already under construction and is set to be placed in the West Texas mountains. English musician, Brian Eno, has helped with a 10 bell arrangement that will chime a different sequence each day for 10,000 years.

Aside from those technicalities though, the project addresses larger questions about the world and our place in it. Especially in light of recent events, this project demonstrates a refreshing optimism toward the future and celebration of our capacity to take on the most insurmountable problems. Watch the short video portrait below!
