The Chronulator was featured prominently in a National Instruments blog post, “Yes, Virginia: You CAN Buy an Engineer a Good Gift“:
The world’s fastest LabVIEW programmer Darren Nattinger suggested a throwback clock called The Chronulator. “I have one on my desk at home and I’m a big fan of it,” Nattinger said. “It uses a pre-programmed TI microcontroller and two analog ammeters to represent hours and minutes. It comes pre-built or as a solderable kit that you can put together. The source code is even available if you want to tinker with it.”
This explains the sudden up-tick in Chronulator orders from people with geeky e-mail addresses. Thanks to everybody who ordered a kit — I hope the intended recipient enjoys it!
