    Actually, Gallileo used his pulse to time pendula (actually, I believe, candelabra in a church).

    He did use his pulse to time pendula.But thereafter he invented a mechine too.
    Someone told me the name of the mechine , but I have forgotten it.
    He also told me that it was known to very few person.
    Thank You.
