Time Circuits Timepiece

- It should automatically know the time using some reliable source (GPS time or NTP over WiFi)
- It may have an annoying alarm

Bonus points:

- Use the year segments to display something more useful on a cycle: temperature, humidity, or perhaps a terrible rendition of the game Snake.”
