For senior computer geeks, a hackable, open source digital clock apparently is much better than a normal wall clock. If you’re one of them, the following DOTKLOK should be suitable for you.
DOTKLOK is a handmade digital clock that measures 18 x 14 x 5cm. the enclosure is made from laser-cut acrylic panels, and comes with a 3.75 x 2.75 inches LED display with 24 x 16 pixels resolution. Similar with the monochron clock, DOTKLOK is also a hackable geek clock based on Arduino, an open-source electronics prototyping platform. This means that, in addition to 12 user-selectable time animations, you can also change the functions of four buttons, add new time animations, and even more switches, buzzers, and sensors.
Moreover, the hackable digital clock also features 24 /12 hour modes and random mode for time animations, and also comes with RTC chip with backup battery and universal power supply. After the break, check out the demo video.
DOTKLOK hackable open-source digital clock is available in two colors, including red and blue. Each one is priced at $150 USD. If you’re interested, jump to Etsy for more details.
