Lunchtime Clock Hack is Pure Genius, Will Inevitably Get You Fired

by Paul Strauss

Looking for a great way to get a little extra time during the day at work? Well don’t tell anyone we told you this, but this clever hack could extend your lunch hour every single day – at least until your boss catches on.


Cooked up by Randy Sarafan, the Lunchtime Clock is designed to automatically speed up by 20% at 11:00am every day, then slow down by another 20% at 11:48am. It then gradually rights itself up until 1:00pm. All told, you end up with an extra 12 minutes of quality time for yourself – isn’t that nice? With a 5 day work week, and 2 weeks vacation, that’s 50 hours of your life back every year.

The hack uses an Adafruit real-time clock kit, and an ATMEGA168/Arduino controller to work its magic. You can grab the full plans for making your own Lunchtime Clock over at Instructables. If you boss finds out, just invite him/her to enjoy an extra lunchtime martini for themselves.
