Mad Genius Clock Design

I came up with what I believe to be a unique clock design a few months ago, but didn't have a name until today. The term mad genius was used by a friend today and I thought it fit.  The clock only has an hour hand traveling back and forth through the spindle in a 12-point star pattern.  I aim to have a physical model over the summer.  Here is a rough animation of the pattern.
