Chronulator: open kit-clock that uses gauges to display anything

The Chronulator is an open source kit for building a handsome and marvellously impractical clock; the builders at ShareBrained Technology say, "The Chronulator starts life as a clock, showing the hours and minutes on two old-school analog panel meters. Dress it up to look like old test equipment, audio VU meters, or motorcycle gauges. Mount it in a picture frame, shadow box, computer case, plush toy, pumpkin... Customize the code and hardware to make the meters indicate something other than time -- network traffic/lag, outside temperature, freeway congestion, terror threat level, stress level, whatever! Let your imagination run free."
