Open Clock Project

Open Clock Project

The Open Clock Project is…

  • An intuitive, adaptive, and delightful touchscreen alarm clock.
  • Easy to see with uncorrected vision, and easy to set with confidence, even when tired.
  • An open hardware work-in-progress.
  • Powered by Arduino, curiosity, and ignorance.

This is a journal of the design and prototyping process, starting with a February 2012 rant about what I dislike about every alarm clock I’ve met. I didn’t know much about electronics, but that hasn’t stopped me yet!

My discoveries are recorded here, for the benefit of present and future Citizens of the Makerverse.

Lots of Adafruit products in this project, including the Adafruit Proto Shield, Chronodot, Wave Shield, and Arduino UNO, and more!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
