Build your own interactive Pacman Clock for your work bench or desk!!

Some time ago I developed an Arduino and ESP32 Pacman Clock which proved to be popular with DIY electronics Makers. I was looking for an alternative all in one platform device that meant no electronics skills would be required so I reworked the code to work with a Seeed Wio Terminal and the results were pretty cool.

The Wio Terminal is a SAMD51-based microcontroller with Wireless Connectivity powered by Realtek RTL8720DN that’s compatible with Arduino and MicroPython. Currently, wireless connectivity is only supported by Arduino. It runs at 120MHz (Boost up to 200MHz), 4MB External Flash and 192KB RAM. It supports both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi providing backbone for IoT projects. The Wio Terminal itself is equipped with a 2.4” LCD Screen, onboard IMU(LIS3DHTR), Microphone, Buzzer, microSD card slot, Light sensor, and Infrared Emitter(IR 940nm). On top of that, it also has two multifunctional Grove ports for Grove Ecosystem and 40 Raspberry pi compatible pin GPIO for more add-ons.”
