TiWalkMe Escapement, a new way to view time and space.
is a living clock that ticks out a thousand years- with each
tick of the clock triggered by the annual planting of a new
row of trees. People flow through the clock, like sand though
an hourglass, as it grows. A year is paced out every 20 feet,

to the past, and appreciation for how fast change can be accomplished.
TiWalkMe provides this sense of perspective.

Like-charges repel, so if you filled a plate with tiny charged spheres,
what would happen? As it turns out, charge spheres in a plane are
the basis for a fun toy, as well as a model system mimicking real
physics. See this paper for a complete description, or make your
own version for a science project.
