XXI century sundial with LASER – Arduino sketch included too… Alessandro writes-

This is a simple project of a sundial wherein the pinion is replaced by a line LASER I took from a LASER level. The LASER is mounted on a RC servo which in turn is driven by a micro controller. The micro controller keeps the time and turns the RC servo accordingly. Very basic in design it does exactly what I wanted and has as few parts as I could. The micro controller is an Atmel Attiny24 with crystal for better accuracy. The internal RC oscillator could be calibrated but in the end the precision can be achieved from a crystal quartz only.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

    This is great. But what does it mean? Laser clock available from adafruit soon or just a repost from the make blog?

  2. Presidentpicker – we didn’t see this on MAKE, we posted it because it was a cool project. perhaps someone will make a kit, or perhaps someone will get inspired and make this project.
