Retro Digital Clock W/ Raspberry Pi Zero

This project combines the amazing retro look, with the almost endless possibilities with Raspberry Pi and IoT.

In this guide I will show exactly how I designed and put together this 3D printed Raspberry Pi Zero retro digital clock.

By default it only displays the current time, but this can of course be customized to have much more functionality, just by adding more lines of code to the simple python program. If you want to, you can make it show the date, or the weather and temperature outside, by using a simple weather api, or maybe you want the display to show the news or current stock market prices.

Feel free to play around with the idea and the design, and customize it to fit your needs.”
