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?”
“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!

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.
