The building will be the first skyscraper in the world to fully rotate 360 degrees, powered by a solar power plant at the base of the tower.Cite web |title=Time Residences |url=http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bu/?id=timeresidences-dubai-unitedarabemirates |publisher=Emporis.com |accessdate=2007-12-02] The entire 80,000 tonne structure will complete one full rotation through 360 degrees over a one week period. This means that the tower will turn about 52 degrees in one day. State of the art bearings at the bottom of the structure will allow the skyscraper to move at a linear velocity of 5 mm per second using a minimal amount of solar power. The building will have 12 o'clock markings on the structure, allowing the skyscraper to become a fully functioning timepiece. This has led to the saying that this skyscraper may be the world's largest gadget.
