Pac-Man Clock

Last year I got something cool for my birthday that I wanted to show you all.  It’s a Pac-Man clock with a bunch of LED lights that simulates an old arcade screen.  I originally saw it as a prize you can earn with tickets at Round 1 Arcade, but it cost too many tickets and buying it online was expensive, too.  So I’m glad a family member bought it for me for my birthday.  So let’s take a look at it!

Here’s a bigger shot of the box it came in.

And here it is out of the box, with just the time on it.  One thing to note is the screen is REALLY bright.  It’ll light up the whole room that you put it in!  I like how the number font is the same as the numbers on the Pac-Man arcade game.

Every fifteen seconds or so, they’ll have an animation that runs by over the numbers.  Two times in a row, they’ll have Pac-Man being chased from left to right by the four ghosts.  Here is a picture of that.

But every third time, it’ll have the four ghosts all blue being chased by Pac-Man from right to left.  Sorry the picture is a bit blurry.  It was hard to take a picture of moving objects.

I tried to get a shot with Pac-Man on the clock, too, but this is as close as I got.  I guess I could’ve tried harder, but I think you all get the idea.

If I had any problems with the clock, it’s that it’s not an alarm clock.  I think it would’ve been easy to implement that in, and would’ve made it a bit more useful as well.  Also setting up the time is not as intuitive as other clocks.  You can also set the date, but I don’t know why since you never see it on the clock anyway.  But other than that, this is a super cool clock and I’m glad I got it for my birthday.  Later!  –Cary
