Doctor Who Gallifreyan Clock #SciFiSunday

FC73W56IJ8UU4UL MEDIUM

Super cool project tutorial from instructables user Baybren.

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!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
