The Apple II Watch

by Paul Strauss

The Apple Watch is causing quite a buzz these days. And while reviews have been mixed, I’m still planning on ordering one, since I feel that I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t at least try one for a few weeks. And while many of you will wait for second-generation Apple Watch 2 to arrive, you could also build your own Apple Watch, like Instructables contributor Aleator777 did. Except in this case, it’s an Apple II Watch.

Yes, this newfangled/oldfangled timepiece features lots of details inspired by the classic Apple II computer, including its drab beige color scheme, monochrome green screen, and iconic Apple logo. The watch runs on a Teensy 3.1 processor, connected to a 1.8″ TFT screen (so I guess it could display more colors than green if you wanted to.) It’s even got a digital crown interface just like the real Apple Watch.

It even has a couple of tiny floppy drives – though I dare you to try and cram a 5.25″ floppy in them.

Head on over to Instructables to check out the complete build log for the Apple II Watch.
