Resistor Color Code Clock: NUW
Thanks to Luc for sending in this project! Luc writes:
made a clock that displays the time in color codes. More explicit in resistor color codes.
I used an Attiny85 for this so the project could easily be done with a trinket.
Unfortunately Adafruit products are not easily to come by here in the Netherlands otherwise I could have done it with a trinket……
The color codes are presented by 4 neopixels. 2 pixels for the hours and 2 pixels for the minutes.
Time can be set using 2 pushbuttons.
The clock runs for about 8 hour on AAA batteries which can easily be exchanged for a small USB powersupply.

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.
