Chiming, Scrolling LED Matrix Clock

Matrix clock with scrolling time, date, day of week, temp, humidity and event notifications.

I wanted to build upon the clock logic I developed for the previous clock but put it into a more visible format. This clock is built into a repurposed vintage wine box and uses eight LED matrix units to display time, date, day of week, temperature, humidity and events that are either static (e.g., a birthday or Fourth of July) or floating (e.g., Memorial Day). The clock also offers a choice of silence or Westminster chimes or mantel clock bells. Finally, there’s a built-in Easter egg that shows off what the matrix display can do (using the library functions) while play the theme to Game of Thrones.”
