    I thought about making a real dynamite alarm clock like the "Palestinian Alarm Clock" from family guy but i figured it was too illegal so I didnt make it.

    You should post a main image that isn't blurry and write a little more text in the intro and I would totally feature this to the homepage.

    This is great, looks incredibly cool!

    If you can, take a photo of this by a window with the light source behind you, that should be a lot better and you're pretty much guaranteed a feature ;D


    I think the iPod might have a camera better than the one you are using

    I don't understand the point of the circuitry, is it purely cosmetic?

    Perfect for your carry-on luggage. This is an awesome idea. I may need to build one for myself.
