  • This isn't 100% accurate. The Solder:Time watch is open source - non commercial use. The code is available and there are programming break-out pads on the bottom of the Solder:Time PCB especially for people to hack it!

    Simplifying the design reduces the manufacturing cost (and using an ATmega makes hacking a bit easier for people coming from the Arduino platform), but it also reduces some hacking possibilities. The RTC clock chip used on the Solder:Time has a bunch of untapped features; date with day, seconds, month, and year, AM/PM, 12/24, Alarm 1, and Alarm 2.

  • The LEDs are actually red.

  • It uses the analog reading from the piezo sensor to generate a number. So theoretically if you hit it with the same intensity you could roll the same number over and over, but I haven't been able to.

  • I'm glad to see that people are having fun with the Dice Kit

    If you want to see how it was done and maybe learn a bit of Microchip assembly programming. Here is the ASM file. (Not for commercial use.)
