These are a lot of fun:

var. 0 - chromatic - 48 tines:

In three minutes, the largest dot will travel around the circle once, the next largest dot will travel around the circle twice, the next largest dot three times, and so on. The dots are arranged to trigger notes on a chromatic scale when they pass the line.

Details here. Also cool: Wheel of Stars.
