HDD Clock by TurtleVVisperer HDD Clock by TurtleVVisperer
Now I can tell time in STYLE.
A geeky sort of style.

This was pretty quick, done mostly in one afternoon. It required taking every thing out, disassembling the motor with the delicate touch of caveman tools, and then sticking the clock movement through a hole I drilled in it. (yes, the clock really works)

Check out my page about it on my website: [link]
I'll be adding a tutorial there soon.

SKITTLES?!
It IS tempting...

I really wish I would make more of these, however I have so many other projects I'd really like to get done first. :/
Maybe someday I'll get around to doing everything...

This is cool. I have made clocks with CD before, but never a hard drive. I will have to try this.

And thanks for the comment on the H Turbo 5000

Hah, that was the main motivation for making it. When I took apart the harddrive and saw how PERFECTLY spotless the drive was, I knew I had to do something with it.

Eh, I don't know if I'll make more of these. If I do, it'll probably be this summer. I'll make sure people know if they are for sale.

I was actually going to start tampering with my own, I play with computers and have some spare hard drives. I honestly haven't put any time into it yet though to figure out how. I'm a lazy one :strong:

That really is a great idea you had in making it though. I think I'm jealous.

Hah, I looked up the urban dictionary's definition for awesometastic:
"When awesome and fantastic had hot sex, they created awesometastic."
I wish more of my work was the result of hot adjective sex.

Anyways, thanks- you really should make one. It didn't take that long at all.
