If you’re a visual type of person, here’s a creative clock for your wall that will keep your creativity delighted. This stylish design was inspired by Mac OSX Dashboard widgets. The clocks internals are from Quartex Push-On movements. The icons, frame and seconds hand actually glow in the dark, while the florescent red hour and minute hands glow vibrant red under black uv lighting. This clock is 140mmx140mm (5.5×5.5″) in size.
The dashboard base is printed in two colors, using the “Change Filament” during printing method. In the photo above, the base is printed with black and glow-in-the-dark ABS. The enclosure piece fits Mini-Quartex Push-On movements. The enclosure houses the clock components and requires taping or glueing the edges to the back of the dashboard base. The second, minute and hour hands should fit right where they’re suppose to and have no tolerance issues. These hands can be printed together in MakerWare. The top of the enclosure has a tab for hanging on walls. Printed on a MakerBot Replicator and sliced with MakerWare using high setting, skeinforge, 0% infill, 1 shell and 0.2mm layer height. I used accelerated x3g 80/150 rates. If you don’t have access to a 3d printer, check out our Etsy page http://etsy.com/shop/Pixil3D.
One feature of OS X and Safari we are surprised gets little love is Web Clipping. When you just can’t find a widget or need to have quick access to information, web clipping can save the day. If you are unfamiliar, Safari provides a neat little button that allows you to clip parts of web pages and use them on your dashboard.
We use this feature to keep track of financial commodity prices throughout the day. Yes, we know that might sound odd, but there are no readily available commercial widgets available currently that can show all of the commodities we need. We also have the ability to keep track of a large amount of information on our Dashboard that would otherwise not be timely or require the usage of a Bloomberg terminal. Hence our love of the Dashboard clipping feature.
Here’s how to make your own Dashboard widget in 3 easy steps:
1. Choose the site you want to clip. In our case, it is the CME Group for oil and natural gas futures contract prices.
2. Clip the part of the website you want We choose to pull the full spread of commodities. This allows us to not only view real time prices, but to also click on the hyperlink embedded in our new widget.
3. Customize your widget to look however you need it to. We stuck with stock glass theme, but there are others available. Additionally, working with your new widget does mean it take a short time to load new information; it is not bad, but there is a delay from when you open the dashboard.
Enjoy your new free, no coding required, widget!
Tired of Dashboard closing your open widgets whenever you install a new version of widget? Smart Widget Installer is the answer.
Just drop any number of widgets on the app to install them. If the widget is not installed, it will install normally. If it is already installed, you get the smart upgrade option, which will update the widget without closing any copies you already have open. If you’re tired of having to move your widgets back in place every time you update them, this is for you.
With OS X 10.7 or later, you can set Smart Widget Installer to open automatically:
- Select any widget in the Finder
- Choose “Get Info” from the File menu
- Go to the “Open with” section of the Get Info window and select Smart Widget Installer
- Click the “Change All…” button, then click Continue
TechCrunch links up Carnegie Mellon student Richard Hong and his pretty much pixel-perfect looking rendition of Apple’s Mac OS X Dashboard widget platform… on the iPad! The video shows not only the widgets working, but being added from the web and managed on the iPad as well.

BTW: Its our Rollercoaster Mac OS X Dashboard Widget in the end of the video:
