Build a talking Alarm Clock synced to Google calendars. // Project


Originally published at:

My original project 30 years ago was to build a talking Alarm Clock, which was based on a 6502. This is a revamp of that project. Interesting to see what can be done so easily these days!


Hi Mick,

I noticed you haven’t created a circuit diagram, i was wondering if you could either create it or send me your hand drawn circuit and i’ll tidy it up for you and create an electronic version.

Cheers mate

Hi Paul,
Hmmmm. Thought I had, but looks like I had overlooked it. Yup, I’ll draw it up and attach it to the website post.


Thanks Mick it is greatly appreciated.


Hi Mick,

I had a conversation with Andrew Dobie from SamacSys and at my request he has created the CAD files for the Firebeetle ESP32 board. The DOT Matrix Boards are WIP.

Perhaps give him a mention on a video sometime.
