ESP8266 ESP-12E Arduino Clock W/ Outside Temp & LEGOS & NeoPixel Ring

We went all ‘cord-cutter’ and ditched our Cable box and realized something was now missing in our family room…the oh so familiar LCD clock that was always present. I decided to get to work on a replacement and had some fun with it. If you’re like me you’ve ordered an Arduino kit here and there when the …

Clock Four – Scrolling text clock using Arduino

Introduction Time for another instalment in my highly-irregular series of irregular clock projects.  In this we have “Clock Four” – a scrolling text clock. After examining some Freetronics Dot Matrix Displays in the stock, it occurred to me that it would be neat to display the time as it was spoken (or close to it) …

MINIATURE ATOMIC CLOCK (MAC – SA5X) IS ONLY 2 X 2″

Miniature Atomic Clock (MAC – SA5X) Rubidium Oscillator, re-designed for improved stability and new features. The MAC-SA5X is designed for applications that require long-term atomic oscillator stability, but are constrained by size and low power requirements. Versatile Microchip’s next-generation MAC-SA5X miniaturized rubidium atomic clock produces a stable time and frequency reference that maintains a high degree …

THE SEVEN-SEGMENT DISPLAY THAT’S ALSO AN INPUT DEVICE

We’re used to seeing all manner of seven-segment displays, be they mechanical, electronic, or something in between. But what all these displays have in common is that they’re, you know, displays. Using them as inputs would just be crazy talk, right? Perhaps, but we like where [Dave Ehnebuske] is going with “InSlide,” the seven-segment input device. …

NETWORK CLOCK USING ESP8266 AND OLED DISPLAY

There are several situations where using an RTC could adversely affect your project by increasing cost, size, time accuracy or IO requirements. To prevent this, especially in ESP/WiFi-based or other clock-reliant projects, makers usually turn to obtain time information from NTP servers. I recently came across a project by BitsandBlobs which used standalone NTP Servers and I felt …

Clock with Tics (presentation prototype) using Arduino

Clock with Tics is an Arduino-powered 24-hour digital clock that displays expletives at random intervals. A clock ‘ticks’. A ‘tic’ (note the different spelling) can be a mental disorder and can manifest itself in a number of ways; most seriously, someone suffering from “Tourette’s Syndrome” will blurt out swearwords involuntarily. I had thought of titling …

Rainbow Word Clock using Arduino

At long last I have managed to finish the Rainbow Word Clock! Once again, this one was inspired by Doug and his creations http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Wordclock-Grew-Up/ I have a fixation with RGB LED’s at the moment and I wanted to do something a little different. So, while it is still here (before my girlfriend nicks it!) I thought …
