This Saturday (Jul. 12), the San Francisco Mechanicrawl Tour will give metal-heads and tech geeks a chance to explore the Bay Citys greatest mechanical wonders.
Among the stops are Musee Mecanique, where visitors can see turn-of-the century machines and classic arcade games, and the Long Now Museum, where a prototype for a clock thatll run for 10,000 years is in the works.
According to spokesperson Alexander Rose, the ticker of the future is being built to provide an example of long-term, inter- generational thinking, so that people stop worrying only about the present.
He says, We want to show the mechanical roots of our culture to people in the future, so were building it to look like this modern, Victorian clock. I think it will make future generations care about us and the way we lived.
