A word clock tells the time using words. This clock uses the Adafruit NeoPixel NeoMatrix 8×8 to create a colorful word clock! You can power it over USB so it makes for a great desk time-keeper
The clock uses the DS1307 Real Time Clock breakout kit so it’ll keep time even while unplugged! The DS1307 has an accuracy of +/- 2 seconds per day, but this clock tells the time with a precision of five minutes (so it’s good for general time keeping) The microcontroller board we’re using is the Pro Trinket 5V but you can swap it with any Arduino compatible or microcontroller that can use I2C and NeoPixels.
