Al-Jazari's 800 year old automatic Elephant clock
Producer: Ahmed Salim
Al-Jazari's 800 year old automatic Elephant clock using water technology. An example of the Muslim origins of modern automation and robotics.
Muslim Scholars brought many new inventions and also they improved or re-introduced old inventions like the Elephant clock which embraced many cultures as a scientific dedication of respect and understanding.
The seven meters high clock uses Greek water raising technology, an Indian elephant, an Egyptian phoenix, Arabian figures, Persian carpet, and Chinese dragons, to celebrate the diversity of the world.
