Kinetic digital clock takes 7-segment displays to another dimension

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — July 20th, 2021 Seven-segment displays have been around for ages, and they have a really cool retro aesthetic about them. Over on Instructables, user alstroemeria (known as Jacky Mok in real life) decided to build a different kind of display that utilizes individual servo motors to slide the segments out, thus creating a 3D clock. The […]

Electromechanical 7-segment clock made with an Arduino and 28 servos

Reading Time: < 1 minute Electromechanical 7-segment clock made with an Arduino and 28 servos Arduino Team — April 15th, 2020 Digital clocks are often made out of a series of 7-segment displays, which light up to represent the needed numbers. Michael Klements’ electromechanical project, however, doesn’t use LEDs, but instead physically flips 3D-printed segments into view with 28 micro […]

144 7-segment displays make up this delightful digital clock

Reading Time: 2 minutes 144 7-segment displays make up this delightful digital clock Arduino Team — January 29th, 2020 Using 7-segment displays to make a clock is nothing new, but what if you combined 144 of them together to create an epic LED timepiece? That’s exactly how this project was made, allowing it to show surprisingly smooth mega-numbers and […]

Intuitive Arduino clock has seven alarms and three LED displays

Reading Time: 2 minutes Intuitive Arduino clock has seven alarms and three LED displays Arduino Team — June 19th, 2019 Alarm clocks of old—and certainly many of those today—require several button pushes to set things up properly. Maker Michael Wessel, however, decided to implement his own take on a more intuitive clock, creating a device that features three separate […]

A time-telling web powered by Arduino

Reading Time: < 1 minute A time-telling web powered by Arduino Arduino Team — August 2nd, 2018 Flament bulbs, commonly known as Edison bulbs, contain a variety of interesting LED lights. So interesting, in fact, that maker Andy Pugh decided to take these individual components up and turn them into a 7-segment display clock. While making a clock isn’t an […]
