Make your Panasonic RC-6025 flip alarm clock play audio from The movie “Groundhog Day” via instructables
The Groundhog Day Alarm Clock consists of a Panasonic RC-6025 flip clock modified to play the audio from the movie Groundhog Day when the alarm goes off.
The reason I have created this device is because Groundhog Day (both the day and film) holds a special place in my heart. I first met my life-partner-in-crime on February 2nd, and this Groundhog Day is going to be the 10th anniversary of our time together. What better way to commemorate it than by recreating a heavily symbolic object from such an iconic movie?
After all, being in a long-term relationship can seem a bit like living the same day over and over and over and over and over — every time with different consequences. Every morning you wake up with the same sense of existential dread, and simply try to live through the same set of scenarios again. To remind her of the 10 wonderful years of our existential abyss I have made her this clock which will awaken her to the same recording every morning. Perhaps not as pleasant of a wake up greeting as the alarm clock underwear I had previously made for her, I hope that she will nonetheless appreciate the thoughtfulness of the gift.
If she doesn’t, I guess I could just mail it to Bill Murray. Anyone have his address?
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
