Done for a college project, it’s my multi-purpose clock! Using NeoPixels and the Adafruit NeoPixel library. The initial clock position code was found on the Learning system (I had no clue the useful function “map()” existed, awesome!). The clock also displays animations, dances to music, can be dimmed, and is controlled via remote control. Built in animations such as fire, rainbow, or “guess the clock position” game, which randomly lights an LED after a glittering effect. (read more)
And from the YouTube video project description:
My latest? An RGB LED clock that’s MUCH more than just a clock. It’s the new center piece for your home. Final product will be far more advanced. Demo only features basic customization, time telling, and animations. Cheers to the Plasmatorium.com (@Plasma2002) for the custom CNC milled housing ring! You can get the materials for this project at Adafruit.com!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
