10,000 Year Clock project on a post on Held Action, which pushed me to the Wired article.
The 10,000 Year Clock, also known as the Clock of the Long Now, was first thought up in the late 80s by inventor Danny Hillis. The plan is to build a clock that will last 10,000 years, without error. A proto-type was operating by the end of 1999 (it's now in the London Science Museum). Another two proto-types were operating by 2007. Jeff Bezos, of Amazon.com, funded the project with $42 million of his own money. The project is currently underway to build the full clock.
Imagine using this clock in any and all of your future games, including post-apocalyptic settings and space settings.
