Those are really cool, but where do they lie now?

The "whimsy" and "the" linked clocks are still there and running. There is also one running in England but I have not been able to find any pictures.

Those are absolutely amazing . . . they rub my brain/rods/cones in all the right places. Wonder if there's a home model?

I've seen the first one [whimsey] it's really neat.

littlegreenlights. From what I have been able to find (I haven't paid the fee for the last link) the small models go for around 20K. A bit rich but wow I would love one.

These are too cool! I love "toys" that use water and science principles to work! Puts me in mind of Galileo's thermometer.
