My sister-in-law was impressed by Naked
Clock and wanted one of her own. I wasn't
about to recreate the same project, so I
designed this one just for her. It usually
displays the time, but every 20 seconds or
so a special message scrolls across.
Julianne is way more hip than I am, so I
knew it would need some serious bling. I
went with a conventional circuit board but
mounted in a silver picture frame with
rhinestones. I wonder if it's the first time a
PIC microcontroller has been so tricked out.
|The Back Side
(Switch at lower left is used to set time.)
The overall layout and functioning is similar to
POV Clock. The four-digit display is multiplexed.
One improvement is the switch on the back used
for setting the time. Watch the video here.
