Spamtastic alarm clock that looks like a timeless can of spam.It would make an awesome addition to your bedroom, Kitchen, Laboratory or desk.
It can wake up,Alert you when dinners ready, Tell you when your centrifuge is done or when its home time.
The electrics needed severe modifications to fit in the can. it can be run on a 9v battery or there's a jack on the front to allow the use of a dc mains adapter 9-12v
Its fully functional in the dark. in a submarine, at high altitude or velocity.
The case is made from 99.5% recycled materials.
The outer case is dishwasher friendly, this clock is however unfortunate not microwave safe.
Please do not hold me accountable for any sudden weight gain after using this clock.

SPAM is a registered trademark of Hormel foods corporation, and is an Acronym of specially processed animal meat yum.there is an official spam clock ,i could only find it on ebay , i prefer mine because it works in the dark.

Step 1: stuff you will need

clock kit,(note the review, i found it power hungry too)so i had to add the capacitor after completion risky.
really thin wire ,solid,insulated . 0.5mm
9v battery and connector.
push buttons , push to make x3
green led
jack socket for power (optional.)
thin piece of plastic or polycarbonate 2x4inches, a video case will work.
craft foam or a cheap mouse mat.
hot glue gun (essential)
iron and solder
wire cutters
step drill ,drill and small drill bit 3mm
tin snips ,side cutters and files, (to shape the plastic)
sharp knife
Polaroid pogo printer.and Bluetooth device.you could use a regular printer and sticky back paper, i like its plastic finish.
photo program *, scanner or camera*,(either a cracked old version or free trial)
*i have included the image (2 jpegs in a zip file) so you can skip straight to the polaroid pogo printer
Thats so cool! I'm going home to make that.

Spam is so good. Spam Lite is even better. You can eat twice as much before getting sick. :)
Spam lite ? Similar to low tar cigarettes , or its the same stuff but the serving suggestion image on the can is spam diced into a salad, instead of fried with chips and egg.

This is great. A have a SPAM can looking for some electronics to enclose.

Cool re purpose. I have saved a couple of spam cans waiting for ideas other than pencil cans.
SPAMtastic! What is the battery life?
battery life is really not great with cheap battery, im running on external power.
theoretically it could run happily for longer on 8x AA battery's.
would be awesome if it also woke you up to the Monty Python song of spam spam spam spam
