Photos from 2016’s Ward Francillon Time Symposium – A Meetup for Clock & Watch Enthusiasts #horology

From great grandfather clocks to simple countertop time-keepers, here are some photos from the 2016 Ward Francillon Time Symposium, an event organized by the National Association of Watch & Clock Collectors (NAWCC). Written by David B. Lindow for the Lindow Machine Works blog, thanks for sharing and it’s great to see this rich and storied history still being celebrated every hour, every day!

I recently attended the Ward Francillon Time Symposium. It was a great opportunity to see some old friends, renew some acquaintances, and be introduced to some interesting and talented people I had not yet met. It was the first of these that I have attended so I didn’t quite know what to expect; however, given the list of presenters my expectations were high, and coupling this with it being held at Winterthur even my high expectations were blown away. Bob Frishman put together the program, and I think he outdid himself with it. He has certainly set the bar high for next year at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts where the topic will be Horology in Art.

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.
