Fifth Element “Zorg Door Bomb” Clock, with ‘Clock killkey’ for Turning Off Alarm #3DThursday #3DPrinting

“My man. My my my man. Wha-what’s this thing with all these numbers?”

Zorg Bomb 3

“It’s a it’s a it’s a….” “No no no no no no no.”

Great scene. Fantastic movie.

And now Kevin Rye has gone and remade the “Zorg door bomb” from Fifth Element as a functioning countdown alarm clock, complete with ‘clock killkey’ that must be inserted to disable the alarm! The build is a total maker project, combining a homemade PCB, 3D-printing, LEDs, electronics, and the always-trusty globs of hot glue for assembly! Check out the full project starting with part 1 here on Kevin’s blog. Video below shows the alarm and killkey in operation. Awesome!
