TClock - Tissue Box Clock

In this Instructable I will show you how you can convert an empty tissue box into a cool Arduino based clock that can show the time, date, current temperature & humidity in the room.


Enclosure Supplies:

Empty Tissue Box
Utility Knife / Scissor
Hot Glue Gun / Adhesive

32x8 LED Matrix - for the clock display
DS3231 RTC - for time related functionality
DHT11 Temperature and Humidity Sensor - To measure internal temperature and humidity
10K Ohm Resistor - used as pull up resistor for DHT11
Arduino UNO ( I used the UNO but you should be able to use any Arduino/Arduino clone) - Brain of the project
Jumper Wires
Laptop and Arduino IDE to program the code to Arduino
Power Bank / 9V battery for power”
