Description How To More Details
 

The Defusable Clock kits is an electronics kit that lets you build a scary looking clock that you can actually "defuse". Only the electronics are included -- you use your imagination to build the device you want!

Use modeling clay, paper towel tubes, stuffed animals, etc!

The Defusable Clock is a fully-functional alarm clock just like you’d expect (a normal beeping alarm, snooze alarm, etc.). But at any time you can press the big red button to start a scary countdown sequence exactly like bombs in Hollywood movies. There are four wires across the top of the clock and you have 10 seconds to cut the correct wire; one wire stops the countdown, one saves the day, and two have no effect. The wires are randomly chosen every time the button is pressed for a new challenge every time. (The wires are held in with screw terminals for easy replacement, or just leave them a little loose so you can just pull out the wire.)

Basic soldering is required for this kit. 9V (200ma min) power adapter required but not included.

Note: This kit is just a clock with some wires. Please do not display it / use it such a way that would cause people to panic. It is intended strictly for novelty! Use at your own discretion!

Features
  • Full featured alarm clock w/snooze.

  • Two alarm modes (normal and countdown)
  • Time stored in EEPROM (keeps time after brief power interruptions)
  • Big, scary DET button starts countdown sequence.
  • Screw terminals allow easy wire replacement (or leave loose to just pull the wires out)
  • ATmega 328 with Arduino bootloader for easy hacking
  • Requires 9V (200ma min) power adapter.

Defusable Alarm Clock November 28, 2011
Reviewer: Timothy Buehring from Karnes City, TX United States  
Freakin Awesome!!!!!  I have built one complete to resemble the sticks of dynomite so far.  It's going to make a great Christmas gift for my son.

My only complaint is the tiny piezo buzzer is not very loud.  I fixed that with an 8ohm mini speaker.  Now it sounds 4 times louder.  

This is an easy kit to build, near impossible to mess it up.  Clear and concise instructions.  Once the clock is built it is up to your imagination to finish it off!!!!

I liked the first kit so much I now have a second to build for myself!!!

RTC chip please November 16, 2011
Reviewer: michael pechner from palo alto, CA United States  
I have built the ice cube, monocron and bulbdial.

Like the bulbdial did, people please allow a RTC chip or chronodot to be connected.

Otherwise, very cool.
