Super Nintendo clock


[Aaron] sent us this sweet Super Nintendo Clock that he built. When he found himself with a broken SNES, a friend challenged him to out do his previous NES clock. This time, the display would be located in the cartridge, and removable. Setting the time is done on the SNES controller and seems to work pretty well as you can see in the video after the break.

Now that the display is removable, he needs to build different displays. How about a laser projected display?

    I’d say make each cartridge have a different alarm sound, based on that game’s music.

    @spidermac, good eye ;) it really does work, i was just advancing the time so that you wouldn’t have to wait an entire minute to see the alarm go off, twice.
