IllyClock squeezes color-changing time into coffee can [Video]

While showing admirable recycling motivation, sticking a clock inside an old coffee can isn't enough to impress us; Instructables member florinc makes the grade because his DIY IllyClock adds in some color magic too.  Based on a Wiseduino - an Arduino clone with an integrated real-time clock - and an LED shield, the clock lights up its numerals in different shades depending on the time of day.

Crazy HDD clock is a geek dream

Crazy HDD clock is a geek dream

I have several HDDs crammed in the drawers of my desk that I don't really have a use for. I have taken HDDs apart before just to see what was inside and a dude named Viacheslav Slavinsky has taken an old HDD and made one of the coolest clocks ever from the remains.

Art. Lebedev Segmentus clock is digital and has hands

Art. Lebedev Segmentus clock is digital and has hands

In most geek circles the Art. Lebedev Studio is still mostly known for its cool Optimus Maximus keyboard with the OLED key tops. The design studio appears to have a fascination with ancient Rome since most of its product names sound like gladiators to me. Such is the case with the latest concept from the company called the Segmentus, which sounds like something a gladiator slave would be tortured with if they failed to honor the ludus where they train.

iLuv iMM178 Vibe Plus shakes you awake (then plays you music)

iLuv knows you have trouble getting up in the morning, and they want to help.  The new iLuv iMM178 Vibe Plus is an alarm clock with a difference, and that difference is a "shake & awake" attachment on the end of a cord.  Hide it under your pillow and, when the alarm goes off - which, since the iMM178 Vibe Plus is also an iPhone/iPod speaker dock, could mean your favorite playlist - it'll shake you until you get up.

Geek clock proves you’re too dumb to tell time

Geek clock proves you’re too dumb to tell time

I can remember when my son was trying to learn to tell time. The first time he stared at a clock I bet he felt like I do right now looking at this Geek Clock. I have come to the realization that I am too dumb to tell time, at least on this thing. Thank all that is geeky and good my iPhone has a digital clock and I have a sundial in the garden out back.

DIY Word Clock from old digital photo frame

DIY Word Clock from old digital photo frame

We reckon this is a mod that could be pretty popular after the holidays, when people wonder what exactly they're going to do with the non-wireless digital photo frames they've been given.  Matt Mets took one look at his and decided it would make a great DIY Word Clock, stepping through slides with the time written out long-hand; a frame that can automatically change the image every sixty seconds would even be able to do all the clock-work for him.

DIY Whereabouts Clock tracks family with Twitter [Video]

DIY Whereabouts Clock tracks family with Twitter [Video]

Not being a Harry Potter fan the "wearabouts clock" has passed me by, but this DIY location-indicating replica is impressive enough even without the back story.  The concept is that rather than display the time, the clock's numerous hands show whereabouts each family member is, according to various locations (or situations, such as "mortal peril") around the clock face.  As for the magic inside, our old friend the Arduino and a hacked Linksys router monitor Twitter for location updates.

The first generation of the system attempts to recognize the first few words in the tweet - it monitors a different Twitter stream for each hand - and then shuffles the indicators around to the appropriate point.  If the message can't be interpreted that way, it points to "read me".

Ponoko offers weirdest clock ever called digits

Ponoko offers weirdest clock ever called digits

I have seen more than a few weird clocks in my day and most of them had to do with waking people up who tend to oversleep. I had a clock when I was a kid that you had to throw to turn the alarm off. My mom took it away after I broke some pictures in my room and used my brother's head as a target a few times. Ponoko has a line of clock like devices that you have to manually change the time on.
