Chronophage clock | The time eater clock of Paa

chronophage corpus clock The Chronophage clock or Corpus Clock is a large sculptural clock at street level on the outside of the Taylor Library at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, England . The grasshopper (!) or 'chronophage', meaning 'time eater', advances around the 4ft-wide face, each step marking a second. Its movement triggers blue flashing lights which travel across the face eventually stopping at the correct hour and minute. But the clock is only accurate once every five minutes - the rest of the time, the pendulum may seem to catch or stop, and the lights may lag or, then, race to get ahead. According to Taylor, this erratic motion reflects life's "irregularity".

The clock will be shown in the Amitabh Bachchan starrer flick ' Paa ' as time as not on your side. The chronophage eats up every minute of your life. The charecter 'Auro' in the film also grows older than his age.
