Jared and Jen write in with an awesome open source hardware project / kit -

The Chronulator starts life as a clock, showing the hours and minutes on two old-school analog panel meters. Dress it up to look like old test equipment, audio VU meters, or motorcycle gauges. Mount it in a picture frame, shadow box, computer case, plush toy, pumpkin… Customize the code and hardware to make the meters indicate something other than time — network traffic/lag, outside temperature, freeway congestion, terror threat level, stress level, whatever! Let your imagination run free. In case you can use it, I’ve attached a photo of a Chronulator designed by Alexis Turner, a woman I know from my local DorkBot chapter (DorkBot PDX).
