Instead of tossing out his junk components, one man decided to make a clock with a difference: it tells the time on the various planets, not just Earth. So we now know the time on Jupiter, but the reason we'd want to know it is somewhere out there in the ether...

Using a backlit LCD, 16-button keyboard and PIC16F877A microcontroller, the 16 timers can display the exact time on the planets. He can even set alarms, if he wants to wake up in Saturn's AM! But can he go back in time to a much cooler period of his life? I wonder. [Avtanksi via Dangerous Prototypes via Make]
