Hello humans and other lifeforms! This is my Gallifreyan Timepiece (aka Doctor Who Clock). Unlike Earth clocks, this one displays time in Gallifreyan numbers rather than Arabic or Roman numerals. It takes a bit of getting used to to read quickly, but it works just like any other device that measures wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey Stuff.
This project was a huge learning experience for me. Not only had I never worked with this many LEDs at once, but I learned so much about soldering (I didn’t have a lot of practice beforehand), circuit design, and a few things about circuits in general. Building this clock wasn’t so much hard as it was long; the soldering alone took probably 20+ hours. Of course, I was doing it for the first time and still figuring things out as I built it, so you all can learn from my mistakes and save some time. I also did the code for you as well!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
