While pong clocks are a dime a dozen, Ottowa, ON, maker Andrew O’Malley’s super slick DOTKLOK raises the bar.

DOTKLOK is an open-source, hackable, Arduino-based digital clock that displays a series of unique time-telling animations. The passing of time is depicted with numbers and abstract/geometric patterns such as Morse code and minimal analog clock faces, and includes animations inspired by classic video games such as Pong, Tetris, Pacman, and Space Invaders.

Andrew is selling kits on his Etsy store — for a cool $150, or fifty bucks more for one already assembled. It’s also open source, and he provides the Eagle schematics, code, and enclosure vectors.

    If you are interested in building your very own clock, you should also take a look at the
    “Doomsday Clock Shield Kit”
    http://samuraicircuits.com/merch/index.php?id_category=14&controller=category

    It is designed to work with the “Extremely Accurate Real Time Clock”. This way you can build a clock that can keep very accurate time. According to the datasheet it will lose less than one minute per year.
