亚马逊CEO贝佐斯耗资4600万美元打造万年钟 1000年响一次

近日,国外一侧万年钟的新闻引起了大量网民的眼球,美国电商巨头亚马逊的CEO贝佐斯耗资4200万美元打造的万年钟,在本月20号进入最后的安装程序。当日,贝佐斯还在推特上发表推文分享了整个安装过程,让网民有机会见证了这一伟大场面。

工程师Danny Hillis早在1995年就有了创建机械万年钟的构思,按照他的想法,万年钟的秒针走一格就是代表一年;时针就100年走一格,就是一个世纪,而负责报时的布谷鸟则每1000年出来报时一次,即万年钟每个千禧年响一次。

为了完成这个万年钟构想,Danny Hillis与Stewart Brand一起组建一个名为“恒今基金”的基金会。首个万年钟模型在1999年完成,高度仅有2.4米,现存放在伦敦科学博物馆。

贝佐斯耗资4200万美元打造的巨型机械万年钟高达152米,建于德州西部的一座山里,被一大片树木环绕。以昼夜热循环为万年钟提供动力。地址选在这里的原因是沙漠气候比较干燥,有利于万年钟存放。

此外,万年钟大部分部件都使用了316 不锈钢做成,耐腐蚀,耐温也达1200度以上,轴承使用了工程陶瓷材质,这些材料都是为了保证万年钟的寿命足够长,毕竟使用寿命都是以千年计算。

贝佐斯表示,万年钟的生命周期将会比美国更加长,整个美国文明的兴衰就让这个穿越时空的万年钟来见证。

该基金会表示,万年钟的具体完成时间还不能确定,一旦完成将会开放给游客参观。不过就算你有兴趣参观,要到达目的地也并不容易,这个地方里最近的机场也要几小时车程,到达后还要攀山涉水、穿过隧道,最后登上楼梯才能到达。

还不止,到达后游客还要合力推动绞盘,直到没法推动位置,接着还要爬过20个巨型此轮,这些此轮实际上是一个机械计算器,游客全部登上后,此轮会自动计算出特定旋律,并响起游客的专属旋律。通过这个体验,会让游客对万年中、时间和未来有更进一步的体验。不过这些都是该基金会的构想,不知道建成后的万年中是否有这个功能。
