Default I'm not sure this belongs in this thread

I want to make an animated Time Turner from the Harry potter series. I'm fairly confident I can model it, i'm just not sure how I would go about getting the sand to fall. If anyone doesn't know, a Time Turner is like an hour glass. Any hints on how I should go about doing it?

I would go with n particles too as they have self collision built in.
