Thanks to Thomas for sharing his clock project with us! Check out more info here.

Made from 12 ESP8266. Each slice controls 5 minutes, plus a certain hour.
Slices independently get the time from the Web, then display their part.
Setup is simplified through a D-Link DIR-505 repeater / access point.
Note that ESP is also the ISO three-letter country code for Spain.
