Monochron Pong Clock is a Lot Geekier Than It Looks Like
March 2nd, 2010
Sander Mulder made a Pong Clock way back in 2005, but Limor Fried of Adafruit Industries ups the ante with the Monochron, a Pong-themed clock for tinkerers. If you want to have one you better know how to solder, because the Monochron will be delivered to you unassembled, and by that I mean you’ll have to install all the resistors and capacitors yourself.
By default, the Monochron can not only display the time – and a game of Pong that will literally go on until the end of time – but the date and year as well. It can also be used as an alarm clock, and the contrast of the LCD is adjustable. If your modding and hacking skills go way beyond basic soldering, you’ll be happy to know that it’s made to be “easily hackable”.
You can get the Monochron kit at Adafruit Industries’ online store for $80 (USD).
