Feed me Seymour!! The Carnivorous Clock is a killer clock design from UK-based designers James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau. Literally. This clock actually kills bugs. There is sticky flypaper area which traps flies and other bugs and the clock is powered by fuel cells that run on the bacteria digested remains of the bugs it kills. The bug juice runs an LED clock. These intrepid designers also have other prototypes for objects that run on other types of animals like rodents. The whole thing is a concept we’ve all pondered but it’s a concept we probably won’t ever see. Bugs! Don’t feed it. Bugs! Don’t need it. Overrated!
