Tape Measure Clock uses a combination of 3D-printed inner enclosure, a stepper motor, ball bearings, an Arduino Nano controller, and a bunch of electronics.

The result is a functional wall clock that visually striking. Though not necessary practical. I mean you literally have to get very close to the tape to see the time. At least that will be the case for an old man like me.
