Art Deco Clock and Weather Display #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
This is a great update to vintage style. Shared on Hackster.io:
Research for my previous project on hackster, the miniz streaming radio, introduced me to the beautiful world of Art Deco clocks. While building the deco-inspired miniz, I added a deco clock face as an option. I also wanted to add a weather feed as a separate screen. Unfortunately, I couldn’t add weather – that used too much memory on the raspberry pi zero W.
After the miniz was complete, I kept thinking of the impressive clocks, especially one by Gilbert Rohde for Herman Miller. Would be nice to build a clock taking design cues from that Rohde clock. Hmn. A clock is light-weight, memory-wise. Maybe fit a weather display in there, too?
