Is there a way to power this clock with batteries?
Currently no. Motors are very energy consuming parts, so batteries would have to be changed too often.
Can I power Chaotic-Tock with any USB power adaptor?
Yes of course. Any 5V micro USB port should work. Minimal current capability should be 300mA. The same for cable, any standard micro USB cable should work.
Is there a plan to make it radio-controlled?
Yes. We will let you know when it is ready, but in the meantime, enjoy pressing the H and M buttons.
Can I turn off LED lights, they are disruptive at night?
Yes, there is a way to turn off blinking seconds LEDs. To do so, press the C button for at least 3 seconds. Or better, check out page 6 on Chaotic-Tock-User-Manual.
I figured out what H and M buttons are for, but what does the third, C button do?
C button is used for calibration in case gears are moved by force accidentally. For detailed information check out page 5 on Chaotic-Tock-User-Manual.
H and M buttons don’t work during calibration, is this OK?
Yes. During the calibration process the clock is searching for the reference point amd nothing should interrupt this process. Just wait a couple of seconds and your buttons will be back in business.
Are numbers randomly placed for every clock, or they are predefined?
They are predefined in microcontroller firmware so there is no way to change their position. Also, the positions may seem random, but we have taken care to space them as close as possible to extend motor life, but still apart enough to keep the impression of chaotic randomness.
Something is broken, what should I do?
