Who created the clock?

2 Answers

The first clocks were created by monks who needed a way to mark time for their prayers, even when the sun wasn't shining. They also invented the first alarm clocks, which were regulated by dripping water.

Galileo had the idea to use a swinging bob to regulate the motion of a time-telling device earlier in the 17th century. Christiaan Huygens, however, is usually credited as the inventor.
