Nixie Clock With GPS

Nixie clocks are cool, but this one takes the cake despite sporting 60s-era Eastern European IN-14 time-telling tubes as it features a serial GPS receiver to make sure that the accuracy of time is immaculately kept to the dot. Other features include programmable on-and-off times and the prevention of tube burn in by scrolling the current date across. Would you fork out $400 for this piece of home improvement appliance?

Alarm Clock Carpet

Now here’s a fun project for you to do during the upcoming summer holidays – the Alarm Clock Carpet sees a standard carpet being fitted with the guts of an alarm clock, where the latter’s circuit switch has been replaced with conductive fabric stitches triggered by stepping on the rug. Definitely great for sleepyheads who have just stepped out of the bathroom and wonder about the time of the day.
