    Anyone created a home made version of the binary watches you can get now
    (like this one http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/watches/6a17)? They look so
    cool!

    I was thinking of using a PIC and watch (32,768) xtal possibly with a
    seperate I2C RTC device. Most of the devices that would fit in a watch case
    are SMT which I have no experience of in homebrew. Is there anything like
    the equivelant of breadboard for SMT devices?!

    Any thoughts appriciated,

    You can always mock it up on a breadboard, using through-hole
    components. Then, scale it down on the real deal. Nothing beats a
    circuit sim, though.

    Wouldn't have to worry then about SMT I suppose :)
