What is the most overkill desk clock you can think of?
« on: May 17, 2021, 04:48:11 pm »
Here is the specs and limitatons:

* It has to be a desk clock and weather station combo, using a battey-backed RTC and a combined temperature and humidity sensor like SHT30-DIS.
* The form factor must be no larger than a small stack of credit cards - no bigger than a credit card, no thicker than 1 inch.
* It must be able to run on internal battery with full functionality for at least 2 hours.

So, wha would be your most overkill implementation?

Too big even for iPhone 4s. Also it is not a weather station.

If you want overkill, how about a chip scale atomic clock paired up with a Zynq FPGA driving a touchscreen? Probably still have enough room left for a pair of 18650s and a GPS receiver.
Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.
