Thanks to the creativity of “Harry Potter” fans, you can have your own versions of just about anything that appears in the book–minus the magic, of course–with such products out there as time-turner necklaces and knit Weasley sweaters. One more notable Weasley possession has entered the Muggle world.
A fan has made his own version of the Weasleys’ clock, which indicates the location of each member of the Weasley family. Trey Bagley, Duke University class of 2017, made a real, working version of the clock for his parents out of a broken clock he found at an antique store and worked with a friend to make the location-based face. The clock is synced with each family member’s iPhone to determine his or her location.
“Everyone in the family creates locational rules on their phones, and it updates whenever they enter a specified radius!” Bagley said on Imgur.
The clock shows when family members are at work or at home, and the hands are marked with each family member’s initials. The clock even includes the Weasleys’ “mortal peril” indicator customized based on what each person wanted. Bagley’s “mortal peril” setting is based on the stock of the company he’ll be working for next year.
Because the clock was a DIY project, anyone savvy enough could tackle it, and a set of instructions has hit the Internet. But for the rest of us, maybe Bagley ought to consider going into business.
