I always wanted to make a so called ‘Gorgy’ Clock. You see them often in music or TV studio’s. Now I could so I bought a cheap clock at Ikea and ripped out the inside, making room for the electronics and display.
Because it was to be my bedside clock, I thought of adding some extra features such as an IR remote and barometer- humidity and temperature sensor because I love Meteorology.
When I’m awake at night, I have something to look at: temperature (min/max), barometer trend of the last 24 hours and the air pressure change rate which is a very good indication of pending bad weather.
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.
