Binary Clock with Arduino and Plywood

Binary Clock with Arduino and Plywood

“A timepiece that allows to stop and think about the essence of time, and also a fun project to build! Binary Clock Prototype Building a binary clockBackgroundA couple of years ago I wanted to try out some iot-related stuff. I bought a couple of Arduino-boards and some random components and started fiddling around. At first I started out by trying …

Solar Tide Clock

Solar Tide Clock

“Tides. In Anchorage Alaska we live on a point located between two enormous tidal bays—so big in fact that Captain Cook on his initial survey of the area thought (hopeful thinking) that this entrance would prove to be a “northwest passage”. It is shallow and all boats traversing to the port are aware of the difficulties involved with a …

Analog Clock With LED Matrix and Arduino

Analog Clock With LED Matrix and Arduino

“LED matrix with MAX7219 are very versatile and can be used in several projects with Arduino.In this case, I used it to simulate an analog clock without its hands with very interesting results.The hours and minutes are placed around the center of matrix giving a familiar look of analogs clocks.The code I have developed applies a little …

ArduRadio AlarmClock

“This is the evolution of the ” DIY Alarm Clock ” (https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Alarm-Clock) with the addition of the radio (TEA 5767). Navigating the Web I found a beautiful project of an FM radio with Arduino (https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-an-Arduino-FM-Radio-using-TEA5767/#CLPEZERIX0PVJW6), and since I like music I decided to update my “Alarm Clock …

Acrylic Gravity Powered Clock

Acrylic Gravity Powered Clock

“We made a gravity-powered, acrylic clock with a minute and hour hand. This is achieved by utilizing two heavy weights and a pendulum that allows the clock to “tick” once a second. The pendulum must not slow down or else the clock would stop moving, so in order to keep the clock in perpetual motion, a mechanism called an escapement …

Making a Wooden LED Clock

Making a Wooden LED Clock

“In this instructable I build a simple wood LED clock, using modern electronics components and traditional wood and metal working techniques. I use a 16x9 LED matrix from Adafruit as a digital clock face, power it with an Arduino nano and use a DS3231 Real Time Clock (RTC) to keep time. I also show how to make the pretty reclaimed …

Arduino RTC DS3231 Clock

Arduino RTC DS3231 Clock

“For one of my first Arduino projects, I wanted to create a DIY real-time clock. This project would allow me to build on my Arduino programming skills, allow me to work on my 3D modelling skills and circuit design/creation. This project has gotten me excited! I’ve wanted to great a digital clock that I can use in the …
