This is the first of several posts about an entry that I am making for the Buildlounge.com laser cutter contest. The end goal here is to have a clock that has no moving parts and no electronics that still manages to tell the time accurately. This will be something of a modern-day sundial except that it will display the time indoors. The way that it will do this is it will have a box that sits outside. The box will have a hole in it that allows a beam of sunlight to pass through to a series of optical fibers mounted in the back of it. These fibers will run to the back of the clock face and will back light a frosted piece of glass to indicate the time. This first video shows how I cut the face of the clock out of a sheet of aluminum.
