Holo Clock is a novel 3D-printed clock that tells time using a pair of rings

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — August 10th, 2021 Simply looking at a traditional analog clock sitting on a wall somewhere got pretty boring for one Instructables user who goes by saulemmetquinn, which is partially why they wanted to create a novel design instead. Their device uses almost entirely 3D-printed components that come together to form the “Holo […]

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 […]

The MonKlock tells time using the Cistercian numeral system

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 25th, 2021 Way back in the 13th century, an order of monks known as the Cistercians created a unique numbering system that used a series figures and rotations to represent numbers up to 9,999 in just a single character. Because these numerals are so great in compact displays, using them in a dot matrix […]

This digital clock uses 24 Arduino-controlled analog faces

Reading Time: < 1 minute This digital clock uses 24 Arduino-controlled analog faces Arduino Team — March 5th, 2021 After being inspired by a beautiful, if rather expensive timepiece, Ira Hart decided to make a 3D-printed clock with 24 analog faces that combine to form a single digital display. The overall device is controlled by a single Arduino Nano, which keeps […]

Get the time from GETULA, a modular chain link clock

Reading Time: 2 minutes Get the time from GETULA, a modular chain link clock Arduino Team — January 5th, 2021 After observing a bicycle chain lying on the street in a random pattern, Ekaggrat Singh Kalsi was inspired to make a morphing clock that bends chains to tell time. The clock, known as “GETULA,” consists of four independent modules that […]

Tell time and temperature with sliding numbers

Reading Time: < 1 minute Tell time and temperature with sliding numbers Arduino Team — October 19th, 2020 While dial clocks are functional and well-understood, for something a bit more uniquely styled, Luuk Esselbrugge has created a 3D-printed timekeeping unit with four rows of sliding numbers. As seen here, each digit moves up and down to show the appropriate hour […]

This Arduino-powered clock tells time in colors

Reading Time: 2 minutes This Arduino-powered clock tells time in colors Arduino Team — October 7th, 2020 As humans, we’ve divided time up into 24 hours per day, 60 minutes per hour, and 60 seconds per minute. With many of us now working from home on differing schedules, time may seem a bit less concrete than before, like something […]

This stepper-driven mechanical clock can be set to two different time zones

Reading Time: < 1 minute This stepper-driven mechanical clock can be set to two different time zones Arduino Team — August 5th, 2020 Clocks normally tell you the time in your particular location, but what about that person that you know across the country or even on the other side the world? What time is it there? While it’s easy […]

Create a digital clock out of 24 analog clocks

Reading Time: < 1 minute Create a digital clock out of 24 analog clocks Arduino Team — July 7th, 2020 What if you were to use the hands of a clock not as an individual display, but as part of an array that moves together to form digits? That’s the idea behind Clockception by “Made by Morgan,” which utilizes 48 servo motors […]

This tape measure shows the time of day in inches

Reading Time: < 1 minute This tape measure shows the time of day in inches Arduino Team — May 1st, 2020 Tape measures are great for determining length, width, and height. But what about the fourth dimension, time? Normally you’ll need a different device to show this ever-changing entity, but creators Alex Fiel and Anna Lynton have managed to turn […]

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 […]
