Some Thoughts on Clocks: Analog vs Digital, Talking Clocks, Sundials, Tools and More!

Ponoko blog have a great write-up on the best time to make a clock: now!

Time is an illusion, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make sense of it.

Sure you can live a simple life marking the path of sunlight across the ground or charting the stars to figure out the best time of year to plant your crops. But thanks to 30,000 years of horological advances, making a DIY clock is easier than ever.

How does a clock work? How can I build my own timepieces? Isn’t making clocks, well, hard? Don’t fret. Let’s take a quick trip through the world of clock design and get you started as an aspiring timekeeper.

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.
