This is one hell of a geeky clock! Smile

"Our story begins with the gutting of the SNES and the desoldering of the cartridge connector and reset switch from the mainboard. To my great surprise and greater fortune, the cartridge connector's pins were precisely the same pitch as the through-holes for the display ribbon on the alarm clock, and on top of that, the display required 23 connections, which is exactly the size of one side of the middle part of the connector. Display out, cartridge connector in, very smooth. A little dremel work, and a nice shrouded polarized 2-prong AC connector, which I happened to have a cable for, went nicely into what was the "multi out" port."

That's cool, but he gutted the SNES to make it? A real geek would design a cartridge that runs off the unmodified SNES for power. Or better, runs a ROM that can display any arbitrary output on the LED display. Very Happy
