I created the location-food clock as a way to notify my mom about where I am and whether or not I have eaten the appropriate meals for the day. It uses the location from my smartphone and turns the clock hands to one of three positions: Home, School or Elsewhere. The hands of the clock have three lights accounting for the three meals of the day. Whenever I have a meal, I press a button on my phone (using the IFTTT app) and the appropriate lamp lights up. At the end of the day, if all three lights are on, my mom would be relieved and happy to know that I have had food throughout the day. At midnight (my local time), the lights would all turn off. This clock was created with just my data, but in the future, I plan to add more hands for other members of my family as well. I have wanted to make something like this since I was about 18 years old and my mom would call me twice a day to ask if I had eaten and later on when I started working, my dad would ask me if I was at work or had already left. I wish I had this clock then!
The project was also slightly inspired by the Weasley clock from the Harry Potter world.
