You can embed things into resin with PlasticCast - Hobby Lobby sells it. I
wonder how the buyer plans on changing the battery inside the embedded clock
circuti when it goes out?

Well, if classiccmpers aren't going for it, who will? It may be
a reverse thing, that people who Can't Possibly open a machine
themselves need to pay extra to be able to see it.

On the translucent thing, theres an artist that is selling
a mass of wires in a blob of epoxy as a 'cellphone' for
$3500. Seemed like a neat idea until it was revealed
that the electronics were nothing but a digital clock.
