Amazon.com’s founder Jeff Bezos has commissioned a 10,000 Year Clock. The clock, which is the brain child of Danny Hillis, will tick once a year when the century hand advances and the cuckoo will appear once a millennia.

The clock is being built inside a mountain in West Texas. The nearest airport is several hours away by car and to reach the clock one needs to walk the foot trail which rises 2000 feet from the valley floor.
