Hello Fellow Builders,
I have another time keeping project :nerd:. I was sitting at my desk at work and thought that it needed a touch of home, and what better than a binary clock to show tech and accuracy of a clock. It has been a project to get under my belt since I was working with Chris Savages in technical support; looks fun and it really was.
I took some pictures and video along the build anticipating posting on the forums (in the gallery); it actually was nice for me because it kept a nice logical flow and documented the process. There are already updates that I cant wait to play with, but overall this is what I envisioned it to be. I wanted to build a toy that I could play with on slow days at work. I figured that a clock of some sort would not only be versatile but useful at my desk.
First I was going to use a 4x20 LCD display but opted for the sensible 2x16 to work within the constraints of the case :surprise :surprise:. I had the option to go with a completely custom case but Im going to use that for another project for a lot more bang; and this came out better in my opinion. There are no parts sticking out other than the power cord, so its tidy and still had a bit of room for other stuff that I will undoubtedly put on it.
There are two sides of interest when operating the binary clock. The power and programming side on the left and 3 buttons on the right. Enter, Up and Down.
Im going to whip up a small doc regarding operation; I hope I can upload some video of the setup and operation tomorrow.
Hope you all like it and you can check out my gallery
where I have more pictures and information during the projects build. If you have any questions or comments feel free, I'm welcome productive thoughts.:D
