Atmel AVR HACK – Temperature Controller using Microcontroller AVR

DIY HACK – HOWTO build a “Fire Alarm” Alarm Clock

Wow, this has to be the loudest and best solution for you doozers.

Ever sleep-in because your alarm clock wasn’t loud enough? With this design that is guaranteed not to happen! This hack takes a standard cheap alarm clock, some interface components and a fire alarm bell to get the job done right.
