Maker Daniel Rojas came up with an affordable – albeit smaller – alternative to Biegert & Funk’s prohibitively expensive QLOCKTWO word clocks. Daniel made it using an 8×8 LED matrix, an ATMega 328p microcontroller and a DS1307 real time clock.
Daniel printed the necessary characters on a transparent sheet then programmed the LED patterns to display the time with words.
Head to Daniel’s website to get the Arduino code and board design files for the clock.
