Instructables user travis7s submitted this awesome instructable. It features an awesome, classic hack that is just plain cool.
The Automatic Button Pusher (or ABP from now on) is a quirky little device that will simply extend its "pusher" at a user set time. I originally designed this device as a simple way to schedule my Roomba robotic vacuum to clean while I was at work. The device will use a ordinary digital alarm clock to trigger an electric motor momentarily.
Note: When I mention ABP I mean Automated Build Platform by Makerbot Industries.
