Arduino Fibonacci clock

Makers and Arduino enthusiasts searching for a project to keep them busy this weekend may be interested in this awesome Arduino Fibonacci clock created by maker “TecnoProfesor”. may look a little complicated to read the time but once you know how to read it the Fibonacci clock is a great talking piece. Check out the video below to see it in action. Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician and created the Fibonacci sequence, a series of numbers that now bear his name.

“The original idea of this version of the Fibonacci Clock is not mine, it is an idea belonging to a friend, artmaker43. The concept here is that instead of using the conventional 1-12 to display the time, this device uses blocks corresponding to Fibonacci numbers 1-5, with circular icons adding increments of 12 for minute and second values.”

Features of the Fibonacci clock include:

– The clock is divided into three independents zones: hours, minutes and seconds that use the Fibonacci sequence (1,2,3,5) to simulate counting all the way to 12.
– In the minute and second zones we can find 4 labeled circles lighted by leds: 12, 24, 36 and 48 to indicate when the counting is greater than the ones
– In the hour zone we can find one labeled circle (PM) to indicate when the current hour is on the second 12-hour period (from noon to midnight).
– It uses three buttons mounted on the backside of the clock to set the hour or the minute.
– It uses a DS3231 I2C real-time clock with battery input to set and maintain the time.
