An intrepid hacker has turned an otherwise broken NES into this marvelously nerdy alarm clock, garnering the jealous affection of fanboys the world over. It still needs some work--"alarm time and other parameters have to be set by manually shorting Player 1 controller input contacts with wire jumpers"--but he hopes to someday have it controlled with the paddles gamepads.

Ideas: get that Power button to turn the alarm on/off, require the Konami code to shut the alarm off, add in some classic Nintendo alarm tones. Alright... we're nerds.
