LEGO Batman Clock Hack

batman_clock

Over on the For Toffee blog, a great build hacking a Lego Batman clock to be much more useful:

Inspired by Dan Aldred‘s LEGO Clock hacks (http://www.tecoed.co.uk/darth-beats.html and http://www.tecoed.co.uk/yoda-tweets.html) I picked up a broken Batman clock from eBay for some hacking shenanigans.  I had several aims, based on the great work of Dan before me

  • Add a Pimoroni Scroll pHAT HD, which would allow both text and graphics to be displayed
  • Attempt to retain the existing button board
  • See if the on board piezo was usable
  • Light the white eyes behind the cowl

Based on a Raspberry Pi Zero, he adds an Adafruit Micro USB Breakout for USB with the display being a Pimoroni Scroll pHAT HD.

See the blog post for the details and lots of pictures.
