This is pretty funny. Apparently it works best with USB plugged in, not via batteries, if you plan to really use it as a clock, rather than just a novelty count-down device. Why not have a couple of sticks of (pretend) dynamite for a clock? Wouldn’t the bomb be a wake-up motivator? …if you had this beside your bed?
For some people, there’s nothing worse than having to wake up in the morning, crawling out from beneath a nest of warm covers into the cold atmosphere generated by an air conditioner or inclement weather. These dreadful first few moments of the day are often further exacerbated by the annoying clang of an alarm clock. Now we will recommend you a novelty bomb-like defusable alarm clock. If you want that annoying noise to stop, you’re going to have to defuse the bomb on your bedside table. Well, the bomb isn’t really a bomb but it’s just an alarm clock designed to look like a bomb, complete with sticks of dynamite and colored wires.

John Baichtal reports: Michael of Nootropic Design built the excellent Defusable Clock, which is an Arduino-compatible digital clock that just happens to look like a Hollywood bomb. Not exactly a surprise: the clock is so awesomely Hollywood that Hollyood came calling. The clock was featured as a bomb prop in the CW’s The Tomorrow People, with the expected factual errors pointed out in the video clip above. The Defusable Clock is available from the Maker Shed.
