Solar and SNES Digital Clocks : Videogames, Sun and Time Combined

Most households had a SNES. In fact mine had an NES, SNES, N64 and GameCube one after the other. The Nintendo brand is ubiquitous with gaming. It's no wonder with all the Wii craze that people have started modifying their old systems to recycle them. The cases are almost iconic. Solar clocks are also a good idea. Harnessing solar power is always a plus in a clock. It's too bad that we don't see more clocks that use solar power to work. Read on to find out more about two great clocks that we found!

The SNES Digital Clock
Why would you turn and SNES into a clock? Because you can, that's why! To make it even better, you can actually make this yourself, if you know a bit about electrical circuits. Still, the case looks great and you'd never expect a SNES to hide an alarm clock. The Mavrinac website contains detailed instructions on how to make your own SNES alarm clock. The clock is controlled via the SNES game pad. For those of you curious to find out more, there's even a NES Alarm Clock! [via CrunchGear]

The Solar Wall Clock
This clock is actually called the Suck UK clock. We don't know why, because it doesn't look so bad. It's a well designed small little clock, that is powered by the sun. Actually, the solar panel recharges the internal battery. You can mount it vertically or horizontally on a wall or just leave it on your table. The longer clock hands can be swapped for shorter ones.
