In this Instructable, I’d like to show how to make a simple Bottle Binary Clock. This binary clock can read time information from an NTP server and clock will be updated over WIFI. Time will be shown by RGB LED that are placed inside glass bottles. It looks great, colorful and we can customize the clocks display color.
