Ikea wall clock with electronics installed to backside. Below motion sensor without casing.
It is 2016 and we are about to have flying cars soon, it would about the time to start turning old non-smart objects to smart ones. How would one make a wall clock smarter, say by an epsilon?
For long I have played with the idea on turning the most mundane objects into something completely different – so when I saw ¢ 50 Ikea RUSCH wall clock, made from semi-transparent plastic I knew it would be an opportunity to add some oddball functionality there. Ikea tuning it is, lets start putting the steroids in.
It is holiday season, and I see a pattern with several of my friends. They have started tuning their xmas tree lights. Thus, challenge accepted. Now, I am not going for excessive amount of lights; 240 RGB-pixels are plenty for me,instead I’ll go for the tech in it.
