Introduction: Binary Clock

I always want to have binary clock,so I made one and works great,I love it this clock is fun too watch.
The heart of clock is microcontroler PIC16F84A and other parts like crystal,LEDs.
Thanks for watching the video and here is my links:

Is there a way that you could post something about how to do this as a 12-hr format rather than a 24-hour format?

I can read it in 24 but I am used to 12 and it would just be convenient. Maybe a way to even put in a AM/PM LED would be awesome.

Why did you lay the bits in that configuration? For reading 6-7 bits, I'd be happier with them L-R, stacked vertically. L

I don't understand about what you writing,bee more specific.

lemonie (author)macobt2009-09-17

You laid the LEDs as vertical strips of 2+4 and 3+4. For reading binary I'd (personally) like all 6/7 bits in a straight Left to Right, I'm interested as to why you split into the 2+4 & 3+4 vertical rather than going 6,7 horizontal. L
