Xronos Clock is unique looking, hackable, and fun to use talking alarm clock
What is Xronos Clock?
Xronos (from greek Χρόνος [kronos] which means Time) Clock is not your average Alarm clock. It’s open source, hackable and customizable device. It has a stylish look, hand made, and it Talks! Heck it will even tell you temperature inside your room or from a remote sensor * !
Xronos has internal backup battery that will allow it to keep time if you forgot to plug in … if it’s just for an hour or … for a year or two! All settings are saved to flash memory (EEPROM), so you don’t have to worry about power loss. All your alarm settings and preference will be there when power comes back on!
Since all audio files are kept on SD card inside, you can even change alarm tones, or replace voice prompts with your own**
Xronos has 3 cool looking durable arcade buttons that give you simple access to all of it’s features.

- Dual Custom Alarms with 10 Alarm tones such as melody or special effect such as train, thunder or police siren.
- Change display color to Green, RED or Orange.

New in Version 2:
- Wireless RF module (optional) allows clock to receive data from remote sensors (such as outside temperature and humidity)*

Very good contact with the Len, the clock works as discribed. It was shipped to France and I really love it. Thank you for your great job.
Awesome clock. Looks great. Very well made.
What a pleasure it is to have your clock- I had this old Sony cylinder style for over a decade and every time the power went out for more than a few min it would have to be reset from scratch..
