I built this word clock using parts from Adafruit.
It isn’t an entirely original idea, but I was inspired by Doug Jackson’s Wordclock, who in turn seems to have been inspired by German design firm Biegert & Funk’s Qlocktwo. There are a couple of different ways of creating the faceplate. Doug’s Wordclock uses a cut vinyl sticker, while Cello62 and Scottbez1 both use a stack of printed acetate sheets. I used the laser cutter here at Adafruit to create a black acrylic faceplate, which required creating the design with a vector graphics editor.
