Giant LED Clock Storage Answered

If you're ever worried about being late or not being able to see the time from anywhere in your apartment, this combination storage unit and clock should help. Each number in the clock envelops two storage cubes that are big enough to hold a dozen CDs or any other soon-to-be-extinct media.

This is very cool and super original. You've got some nice bragging rights there. Only thing I'd suggest is to put a translucent black bezel over the whole thing so dark pixels (off state) really are dark.

He's not trying to brag, he didn't make it. I agree with the black bezel though, very good idea. Would look a lot cleaner.

It would be cooler if it was bigger. If i could fill three with magazines and put my tv in the fourth, that would be awesome.

Notice the items I wanted to put inside the shelves. Notice the items actually inside the shelves. Notice the difference between the sizes of my suggested items, and the items actually used in the demonstration. And for the conclusion, think about it.

True, but if you do that, for the proportion of the tv, you'd end up having a nearly 1/2 wall size clock...

Actually, I'd have a half wall of shelving that conveniently doubles as a clock. Function before fashion my friend. If I have enough stuff to fill those shelves, its still not a waste of space.

>I'd have a half wall of shelving that conveniently doubles as a clock. When you have to back up just to see what time it is ... that ain't convenience my friend. It's just a really really big clock that conveniently doubles as a half wall of shelving.

I think that the only place I wouldn't necessarily be able to read the clock is from point blank, loading/unloading/scanning those shelves themselves. Our eyes and brains have the wonderful capacity to see wide angle and process bits of visual stimuli, combining and processing them if needed. Aka it's not that hard to look left to right and go oh, 4+3+8 it must be 438. Even from point blank it wouldn't be any more inconvenient than buying an analog clock.

I guess for me this item is all about form, not function (I already have a watch and there are other shelves aplenty which are big enough to hold stuff). Does it look cool? That's all I care about with this item. So, that said, a 1/2 wall clock would be kind of cool, in an ultra-geek sot of way - but I only think so because of the form, not the function. Though I must admit a 1/2 wall digital clock is almost too geeky. Even for me.

I like Jamie's idea. Cool stuff doesn't have to be all that functional. But the fact that it has the capability to be an entertainment stand as well just makes it less space costly compared to size, even if it would be huge. I wouldn't make it big enough for anything bigger than like a 19 inch tv though. That WOULD be too big. IMO.

Eh ive got a 15 inch flatscreen tv mounted in my ceiling. My rooms small, anything bigger than a 15 inch or 17 inch would be too big. if i had a huge living room, i would so make an entire wall clock.

I know what you mean, I've got some space, but don't like to be crowded. Got a 19 myself. This would be a big chunk of furniture, but cool if you had the space and were willing to part with it.

You can erase your own comments. That would clear it. Then you could re post without the boo. Next to the reply tag, there's flag and delete. Delete only shows up on your comments of course.

That's why it's under Forums and not Instructables. Check out some of Fungus' actual Instructables. You might change your mind on that boo thing. Fungus, you gonna do an instructable on how to actually make one of these? That would be awesome.

I may just have to blatantly rip off this idea for a future project! Imagine all the gigantic clocks you could build... - a door - a dining room table - any number of different shelving units
