New Product – Fibonacci Clock Kit


Here at Adafruit we love a good clock kit. We also love integer sequences, dating back to Sanskrit prosody, that are named after Italian mathematicians – which means we really love this clock kit!

The Fibonacci clock kit contains everything you need to fully assemble a working Fibonacci clock. Inside, you’ll find the parts needed to assemble the enclosure as well as the components and LEDs needed to make your Fibonacci clock glow.

How does it tell time? The secret is in the Fibonacci sequence. Green is minutes, red is hours, and purple counts as both minutes AND hours. Each square, depending on the size of the square, has a number that corresponds to help you tell time. So, for example, the top left is two, the two small squares are one, and so on. When you add the squares together and take into account the colors, you can tell the time. Sound complicated? Well…yeah – but that’s part of the fun and this is a great reminder of the beauty of mathematics that’s also functional (for the math inclined.)

This kit comes with the clock, a power cable, an enclosure, rubber paddings, and some components to make this clock work. You’ll need sand paper, glue, and some clamps to put the enclosure together and there is some soldering required. There’s an instruction booklet included and there’s a ton more information on the ‘Geekoclock’ support page. The clock is also open source so you can read more about the Fibonacci clock here.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
