4795489700 1361229359 Clock Uses Capacitors To Store Energy and Mark Time
Makezine_COTM_Capacitor-BadgePolish maker Nereus built this great solar clock (Polish language site) that features 12 sets of capacitors salvaged from electronic junk, serving both as energy storage as well as a decorative element. The twin solar cells also charge a battery that moves the hands when there’s not enough light. In addition, it has some fun extra features like a voltmeter and temperature display. [via HaD]
