Arduino LED Watch
A 7x7 matrix would also be nice, maybe better.........
I like your led watch very much.I was inspired to see, if there is a smaller solution.I am not familiar with electronics, but I can use Excel quite well.I designed a 5x5 clock in excel, look at the 1st picture.And I managed to get it working to. So if you like to see it live working, I will send you the excelHow to read:The green dots are bi-color leds (green/red)They represent the hours in a square.The top row represents 11, 12 and 1 o'clock, the most right column 2, 3 and 4 o'clockThe bottom row from right to left 5, 6 and 7 o'clock and the most left column from down to up 8, 9 and 10 o'clockThe actual hour is red coloured, the rest stays greenThe corner dots are white ledsThe represent the 10 minute blocksNone of them active means that it is between 00 en 10 minutes pastWhen the upper left corner is active, it tells you that it is from 10 to 19 minutes pastWhen the upper right corner is active, it tells you that it is from 20 to 29 minutes pastWhen the lower left corner is active, it tells you that it is from 30 to 39 minutes pastWhen the lower right corner is active, it tells you that it is from 40 to 49 minutes pastWhen all corners are lit, it tells you that it is from 50 to 59 minutes pastThe middle section of dots are orange ledsThey represent the additional minutes from 0 to 9 in a die formatSee the example picturesI have put the time under the matrices, but they are not part of the watchIf you manage to make such a watchI would like to have one.....;-)greetings Marcel Maatman (the Netherlands)
