Arduino Micro Word Clock: Chronocube

Arduino Micro Word Clock: Chronocube
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.

DIY Cyberpunk LED Eyes: I Ask for This

DIY Cyberpunk LED Eyes: I Ask for This
Want to make a Shadowrun, Deus Ex or any cyberpunk or sci-fi costume? Adaruit contributor Tully Jagoe has a great accessory that you might want to replicate. Tully made a head-mounted array of small LEDs that make his eyes – or whatever part of your face you put them over – appear to be made of light. The project is fairly simple, though you need to be good at soldering to pull it off.

Division Furtive Type 50 LED Watch: Time is Light

Division Furtive Type 50 LED Watch: Time is Light
Like TokyoFlash, Canadian watchmaker Division Furtive makes watches that put more emphasis on form than function. The company’s newest watch is the Type 50, a button- and crown-less timepiece that uses light to both display and set the time. The Type 50 is actually the second watch of its kind from Division Furtive, predated by the now phased out Type 40.

Stick-on LED Ambient Light for PCs: AmbiLED HD

Stick-on LED Ambient Light for PCs: AmbiLED HD
This is far from the first Philips Ambilight alternative that we’ve seen, but Flytron set its AmbiLED HD apart by making it much easier to install and adjust. That’s because this ambient lighting system for PCs uses a thin strip of LEDs with a reusable adhesive back. Like many ambient lighting solutions, AmbiLED HD connects to your computer via USB to analyze the colors being displayed on your monitor and emit similar colors. The difference is that AmbiLED HD sets you free from managing the cords that would otherwise pile up behind your monitor, because its LED strip only needs one three-pin connector for up to 512 LEDs.

Rubik’s Cube Lamp Can Actually Be Played with: Won’t Actually Be Played with
Back in 2009 we saw a concept for a Rubik’s Cube lamp that can be made to change the color of its light by moving its faces around. The recently released official Rubik’s Cube lamp shines only white light, but you can actually rotate its faces and solve it if you want.

If Jason Were a DJ: Sound Reactive LED Mask

If Jason Were a DJ: Sound Reactive LED Mask
If Jason took a break from hunting people down and battling it out with Freddy Krueger and decided to become a DJ, then this is what he would put on instead of the hockey mask. Not that this sound-reactive LED mask has anything to do with the fictional character, but it’s very nature brings to mind none other than Jason Voorhees.

“Light Men” Do Virtual Parkour in Kuala Lumpur
I’ve always had a fascination with parkour. I’m not sure why, but it just looks so awesome. The trouble is that it’s a lot harder than it looks. Thankfully, in this advertisement by Lexus, you won’t have to do any parkour whatsoever.
