Looking for a clock that is powered by a renewable resource that you don’t have to pay for? Well this† Carnivorous Clock might be just what you’re looking for, especially if you have a fly problem. This timepiece is quite eco-friendly as it doesnít run off of electricity or need batteries, but it has to eat flies to continue to run. The whole process is decomposition and whoever thought of it must really hate flies.
This fancy time-keeper uses a honey covered belt to lure in flies to their demise, then slowly moves them towards a scraper that puts them into a microbial fuel cell on the bottom. The only difference between this and fly paper is that this clock doesn’t allow them to die slowly. Now you may think it inhumane to do this, but think of if you had a Venus flytrap. It is literally the same thing. It takes something living, breaks it down into organic matter, and turns it into electrical energy. And hey, fly problem is solved!
