I submitted the clock based tracker idea to SCI early this year. I used a water clock dripper tracker in my projects because i didn't think I could make the clock based one. I also uploaded a diagram to discribe the idea. But what a terrible diagram! It cannot have helped much.
So now I substitute a terrible video of a clock that i used as a guinea pig for the experiment. I did not make it earlier because I didn't think the clock was strong enough. The clock based tracker should be more accurate and more repeatable than the waterclock based tracker and a lot simpler to set up.
Time will tell.
Please make your own.
I know from experience that If nobody repeats my experiments they are meaningless.
