Introduction: Sound Activated Light for the Clock

Picture of Sound Activated Light for the Clock

Have you ever knocked something over only because you wanted to check the time at night?

You wake up in the middle of the night wondering what time it is.

What if your alarm did not work and you have slept in!

In winter months when it's dark outside, it's easy to get confused.

I don't like LCD type of clocks that glow at night, because of the extra light and constant reminder what time it is.

Sometimes, it's better not know to sleep better.

In this project, I pimped my clock so I can see the time by blowing ON the clock.

You can also use your voice or just tap on it.

This project is very simple thanks to the chibitronics

You will need:

  • A clock to Pimp
  • Chibitronics Led stickers
  • Chibitronics Sound Sensor
  • Chibitronics copper tape
  • 3V battery
  • Binder clips

Step 1:

That's how the circuit looks inside of the clock.

When you blow on the paper, LEDs light up.

Binder clip is holding the battery

Step 2:

Open your clock and draw the circuit if you wish.

Then, make the circuit real by adding copper tape, sound sensor and LEDs.

Step 3:

Picture of

Put back together the clock and add the battery.

I used binder clip to hold the battery.

I also added another binder clip to act as a feet.

That's it.

Blow, shout or tap on the clock to see the time.

This is exactly what I've been looking for but those Chibitronics circuits are far too expensive.
