We know, you're pretty proud of that oil painting in your den. And that cuckoo clock you snagged from an earlier trip to Germany is certainly classy. But do your wall ornaments draw crowds in the thousands and move in mysterious ways that even Bono never thought possible? Exactly. Hit that play butt

This is the multimeter clock. It's made of three actual multimeters -- one each to display the hour, minutes and seconds with a 16F628A PIC microcontroller to do the actual timekeeping. Do we want one hanging in our living room? Not really: but it's still very cool.

These things are a dime a dozen, sure, but you can't fault Gear4 for trying. In fact, it has managed to create something that's marginally unique in a world full of me-toos, as the SmartDock relies on hardware and software aspects in order to shine. At first blush, the actual dock isn't much to loo

It's probably not the clock you need to build if being punctual is your modus operandi, but it's sufficiently nerdy nonetheless. One Nirav Patel -- which may or may not be related to our own Mr. Patel -- decided to hand craft his own \"sleep remaining indicator,\" which utilizes a slowly rotating ser
