A clock that ticks randomly, but still keeps accurate time.
The Vetinari Clock is based on an idea from the Discworld series of books by the venerable Sir Terry Pratchett.
Lord Vetinari is one of the many recurring characters in the series. He is a powerful man, and the ruler of the biggest city on Discworld, Ankh-Morpork.
He is in possession of a very strange clock: It ticks irregularly but still keeps accurate time. It hangs in his waiting room, and is designed to be unnerving for the people who are waiting to meet him.
We’ve turned this concept into an easy to solder electronics kit!
The kit comes with a small PCB and all required parts, that you will solder. Also included is a medium-sized wall clock, that you will disassemble and modify, and then connect to the completed PCB board.
You will need to supply two AA batteries yourself.
PS: As of December 2013 we are shipping the Vetinari Clock with a new clock mechanism. The PCB and rest of the components are unchanged, but the firmware has been slightly updated to work better with the new clock mechanism.
