MONOCHRON® is a new clock kit from Adafruit! This easy kit is easily hackable to do whatever you wish, it's a clock platform - have fun!
Comes with: clock kit (includes all parts, programmed chips and LCD), coin battery, enclosure, 9VDC power supply for 220V or 110V
The firmware shipped with the kit is for the Retro Arcade Table Tennis for Two as shown in the video below. We have other clock firmwares available on the project page if you would like to change the display. This clock no longer includes the FTDI Friend + extras for updating the MONOCHRON with new clocks We suggest picking one up if you want to reprogram the clock (our tutorial for how to do this is on the MONOCHRON website.
You'll need some basic soldering & hand tools that are necessary to assemble it! The good news is that this is a pretty basic kit and even if its your first soldering project, it shouldn't take more than 2 or 3 hours to put together
