From the Forums: A Couple Time-tastic Clock Designs by chris101
Check out chris101’s designs for a couple homemade clocks originally posted on the Forums!
Stopwatch with hundredth second precision, using a 3V trinket pro, battery charger backpack, 128 x 64 oled, chronodot, assorted switches, resistors capacitors and a 10K pot. The lens gives it a bit of Jules Verne appeal.
I love seeing the sketch/schematic of the design of this clock:
This master “atomic” clock only has a few Adafruit parts, but they are essential (the chronodot and 128×32 oled), an Arduino Micro, the guts to a wwvb radio clock, some high brightness colored LEDs, a quad opamp, a bunch of vintage resistors, capacitors and other hardware. The hours, minutes and seconds are sent via a littleBits wireless device to several slave clocks.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
