Re: Snap a picture of your ADAFRUIT clock and post it here!

The photos show the Adafruit GPS clock complete with the Arduino UNO board, the Ultimate GPS board, the Adafruit relay board and 7 segment display. The code will close the N/O relay for (2) seconds at the top of each hour. The project was made for the time synchronizing circuit of a 1800's Western Union wall clock with GPS accuracy.
I didn't want to cut a hole into the front panel for the display, so I opted to use a strip of Velcro to keep the display in place. I was able to get help from Rick at Adafruit to incorporate the relay code into the GPS clock.

The photo shows a sand clock drawing the time into sand and erases it with vibration motors:

It features Adafruit PWM/Servo Driver (https://www.adafruit.com/product/815) and 500 mA Power Boost LiPo charger (https://www.adafruit.com/product/1944)
Videos and build instructions and project is described on https://mcuoneclipse.com/2016/11/23/mak ... and-clock/

Enjoy!

Here is my "clock" although its primary purpose is a weather station to read the indoor and outdoor temperature with two DS18B20 digital thermometers. I'm using node.js, sqlite3 and guplot to display lots of data.

I THINK that I am done with both building and modifying my ice-tube clock. It only took me 5 years! Stock clock hardware with a new ATMEG328 programmed with xmas-icetube firmware, an Ultimate GPS and the dimmer mod. I mounted the GPS under the unit and I think it is pretty unobtrusive there and seems to work just fine. I put a small piece of electrical tape over the GPS LED because I have the clock in my bedroom right now and the occasional red blink in the dark was annoying.

I'm inspired by all the great ideas here! First post on the forum and here's my clock from concept to reality.

Fritzing breadboard (actually documented last):

Thanks for looking!

This was mainly an exercise, to see if an arduino uno would run a parallel 8-bit 240x320 LCD and the spi port without clashes.
It is fine, using the excellent Adafruit libraries to drive the lcd, and the RTC DS3234 on the spi pins, and an added font.
Strangely hypnotic watching the seconds tick over ! Thanks guys.

Stopwatch with hundredth second precision, using a 3V trinket pro, battery charger backpack, 128 x 64 oled, chronodot, assorted switches, resistors capacitors and a 10K pot. The lens gives it a bit of Jules Verne appeal.

This master "atomic" clock only has a few Adafruit parts, but they are essential (the chronodot and 128x32 oled), an Arduino Micro, the guts to a wwvb radio clock, some high brightness colored LEDs, a quad opamp, a bunch of vintage resistors, capacitors and other hardware. The hours, minutes and seconds are sent via a littleBits wireless device to several slave clocks.
