Intruderchron Space Invaders Clock: It’S Pixel Time!

Modder Dataman recently got his hands on Adafruit’s Monochron Pong Clock and massaged it into this cool Space Invaders clock – nicknamed the Intruderchron. Even though originally, the video game Space Invaders came out 6 years after Pong, the Space Invaders clock uses the same hardware as the Pong clock.

Dataman upgraded the firmware, and we have to say that overall, the effect is pretty hypnotic. The Pong clock was also cool, but it would be best if Dataman’s next clock were able to switch between different classic games, so you don’t have to buy multiple Monochrons.

INTRUDERCHRON - the video

Dataman has shared his code, so if you can hack it or modify it to play different games if you want. You can get your own Monochron kit at Adafruit Industries’ online store for $80 (USD).
