Reviving a vintage secondary split-flap clock with Arduino

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — July 25th, 2022 In the world of computing, many interfaces utilize a primary/secondary model of asymmetric communication, in which a primary host device controls one or more secondary client devices. This model is, for example, common among PATA and SATA hard drive arrangements. It is also common in clock networks, with a…… Reviving a vintage secondary split-flap clock with Arduino weiterlesen

Simulating a flip clock on an Arduino-driven LCD screen

Reading Time: 2 minutes Simulating a flip clock on an Arduino-driven LCD screen Arduino Team — August 20th, 2019 Although flip clocks may be extremely interesting electromechanical devices, with rolling flaps to show what time it is, they’re also fairly complicated if you want to build one yourself. Mark Wilson, however, took a different approach with his project, simulating…… Simulating a flip clock on an Arduino-driven LCD screen weiterlesen
