The “Time Post”. Just finished up this analog meter clock. The time can be set by touching the bolts on the front by capacitive touch. The nail in the top of the post turns on the light and cycles through several levels of brightness. There is a video link in the comments that shows the basic operation of the controls. (read more)
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
Thanks so much to Eduardo for sending in his project to our blogtip line! Check out more here.
One of the most difficult things to play MK are the various movements and buttons that must be pressed sequentially to release a simple combo.
And more, you need to memorize them all…
