Almost a year and a half ago, we successfully launched the Model AWK-105 on Kickstarter and then delivered product to over 400 backers. Now we're back, but this time we're rolling our own and launching the AWK-105AL Alarm Clock independently .
We're a few weeks away from shipping the AWK-105AL and we're offering 20% off if you're willing to join us at presale. We have a track record of timely behind the scenes updates, follow through, and ability to make good on our offer.
The AWK-105AL Alarm Clock vs. The AWK-105
The AWK-105AL represents a full feature upgrade over the the AWK-105. Key differences between the AWK-105AL and the original AWK-105 include:
- Alarm vs. No Alarm
- USB powered vs. Battery Powered
- Backlight Option vs. No Backlight
- AM/PM indicator vs. no indicator
How to Read the Clock
The Alarm Clock uses dual analog meters to tell time - one for hours and and one for minutes. It's both stylish and functional!
Think of the Clock as replacing digital LCD's with analog readouts. Instead of seeing 04:57, the hours meter will point to the 4 and the minutes meter will point to 57. Just like a clock rolls over at midnight and noon, the time meters rolls over zero.
The Alarm clock uses an AM/PM light to distinguish between morning and night
The Technical Stuff
At Awkward Engineer,we love geeking out over the technical stuff. Here's some of the details of what the Clock is made of.
- approx 6" x 4" x 2"
- USB Powered
- ATtiny44 main CPU
- dual analog meters
- mode select knob - modes include: time set, alarm set, calibrate meter 1, calibrate meter 2, and "twitchy needle" display mode
- time set / adjustment knob
- toggle switch w/ safety color to arm and disable alarm
ATTENTION: International Buyers
The Clock is USB powered and ships with a North American style USB wall wart power adapter. We're small and can't manage the SKU's to keep power adapters for each country, but because it's USB powered, you should be able to easily plug in to one of your own!
Gorgeous, analog dials. One dial displays the hours, one dial displays the minutes. A moving coil / permanent magnet mechanism smoothly drives the needles.
Dual retro control knobs select between calibration modes to set the time and adjust the dials.
