Andrew Peleikis of Canada had collected many eMates from eBay for repair purposes. The extra parts--a logic board, a screen, and a battery--were enough to make a working, albeit rather naked Newton wall clock. He then used the BigCountdown app (handily this app only works on eMates and Newton Message Pads) to display a large clock on his eMate's display. Newton geeks rock my strange little hardware hacking world.
