In this video a Raspberry-Pi based wordclock is presented.
The described version displays the current time with a precision of 1 minute, but – when exploiting the capabilites of the RPi – many further things can be done…
Implemented features are
– Changing the display color using capacitive touch sensors
– Rendering strings in a ticker-like style
– Display of low-resolution png-files (considering the wordclock as a display with a resolution of 11×10 pixel)
