Hack a Day
Fresh hacks every day
[bifferos] just found us, but he sent in his NTP alarm clock. It’s actually a Sweex LB200021 router with a custom display driver to display 24 hour time. Given my love of NTP, I couldn’t resist posting this one.
I like the clock not having the extra part on the 6 or 9.
BTW: Clocks based off the LM8560 chip (many are) can be made into 24h clocks by connecting 2 pins together.
It’s Pin 24 on the LM8560 chip, If anyone was dieing to know. :-)
Regarding his needing another option for NTP servers:
http://www.pool.ntp.org/ kicks ass. If you have proper server space please donate!
According to the data sheet you linked to it’s pin 28.
More fun clock stuff: (show seconds, change alarm run time, etc)http://www.isitcrunchy.com/24clock.htm
Though, having a router in a clock is still really cool. They have so much free space, considering how little area is needed to have the clock circuit. I know where I’m putting my fon :D
Thanks various posters. I got out my old soldering iron and 24hour’d my alarm clock today. Why does anyone even use 12-hour time nowadays?
