Vintage portable TV is converted into a Space Invaders clock

Chris Scott Barr - Jul 17, 2007

We see all kinds of crazy clocks around here, but this has to be one of my favorites. Someone rigged up an old portable TV to display a game of Space Invaders that actually shows the time.

To get the current time, just look at the number of lives you have to get the hour, and checking out the number of aliens will get you the minute. If you don’t feel like sitting there and counting aliens, the last digits of the high score will also give you the info you’re looking for.

I really love that he used an old portable TV in this mod. Something newer would have taken away from the old-school feel of the clock.
