Ever since my Remote Context Communicator project I’d been walking around with the idea to make a clock in the same style. I just never had the time. Last summer I did and designed and built the thing. And this is the result!
Check out the vid! I should speak for itself. Though at first reading the time may require some getting used to (hours = 3 colored blocks, minutes = 1 colored block, seconds = fading row of blocks).
The clock is equipped with 60 RGB leds making any color palette possible. In this version of the software the color palette cycles through the colors of the rainbow twice a day. There is a light sensor to make sure that the intensity is tuned down in the dark.
When you’re interested in how it was made check this.
