This insane kinetic clock robot flips itself into position

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — February 23rd, 2022 Displaying the time these days is trivial — you could do it with any Arduino board and a simple four-digit seven-segment display. But as humans, we crave novelty and it isn’t uncommon to see a clock that is more art than a practical timekeeping device. That is true of…… Continue reading This insane kinetic clock robot flips itself into position

This 3D-printed, three-sided clock tells time with three hands

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — February 9th, 2022 Back in April 2021, Instructables user saulemmetquinn had the idea to build a fully 3D-printed clock that was based on the Triangulum constellation, which as the name implies, is a triangle. But it wouldn’t only tell the time using the typical set of hands and numbers, but also the current phase of the…… Continue reading This 3D-printed, three-sided clock tells time with three hands

This clock counts down to retirement

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — January 14th, 2022 For most people, the idea of retiring is a very exciting thought. Finally, after decades of hard work, you can clock out for the last time and spend the rest of your life relaxing and enjoying your leisure years. RdRnr318’s coworker updates her whiteboard every day to countdown the…… Continue reading This clock counts down to retirement

A DIY digital clock with a twist

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — December 27th, 2021 The digital clock has existed in its current form for decades at this point, so it’s quite exciting to see when a new take on the classic design comes along. The Time Twister 5, created by Hans Andersson, is a fully 3D-printed electromechanical clock that twists certain blocks into place, which…… Continue reading A DIY digital clock with a twist

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

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…… Continue reading Kinetic digital clock takes 7-segment displays to another dimension

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…… Continue reading The MonKlock tells time using the Cistercian numeral system

This digital clock uses 24 Arduino-controlled analog faces

Reading Time: < 1 minutes 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…… Continue reading This digital clock uses 24 Arduino-controlled analog faces

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…… Continue reading Get the time from GETULA, a modular chain link clock

Know what time it is anywhere in the world with this Nano 33 IoT-based NTP clock

Reading Time: < 1 minutes Know what time it is anywhere in the world with this Nano 33 IoT-based NTP clock Arduino Team — December 14th, 2020 Kaleb Clark, like many of us, works with others from all around the globe. While he could view any number of websites or commercial options to see what time it is for these…… Continue reading Know what time it is anywhere in the world with this Nano 33 IoT-based NTP clock

Tell time and temperature with sliding numbers

Reading Time: < 1 minutes 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…… Continue reading Tell time and temperature with sliding numbers

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…… Continue reading This Arduino-powered clock tells time in colors

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

Reading Time: < 1 minutes 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…… Continue reading This stepper-driven mechanical clock can be set to two different time zones

Create a digital clock out of 24 analog clocks

Reading Time: < 1 minutes 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…… Continue reading Create a digital clock out of 24 analog clocks
