The Fibonacci Clock
Hi any direct link by using Arduino Uno and RTC?
Making bench dogs for less than 1$
What a neat idea! I'm not a HW guy, more of a SW person. Really like the way blue functions as a double signifier, for hours and minutes, in order to permit two seperate tallyings from 0 to 11 on the clock. But I think it needs a third tally, some mechanism to get in all the minutes from 0 to 59 onto the display.Thought of two approaches to this. First thought was to add a third signal to the display which basically counts from 0 to 4, incrementing every minute. This signal would tell how many single minutes to add to the calculated time based upon the previously existing two tallies. My idea would be to arc counter-clockwise from the single 1x1 cell which is strictly in the interior of the fibo rectangle, i.e the one without any exterior edges. That (interior) 1X1 cell would indicate: 0 added minutes. The other 1X1 cell directly north of it (moving counter-clockwise) would indicate: 1 added minute. The 2X2 square would indicate:2; and the 3X3 square would indicate:3; finally the 5X5 square cell would indicate: 4 added minutes. How to distinguish which of the five cells are "on" in order to know how many single minutes to add? I suppose color saturation. Normally, I'd envision all colors to be muted for the other two tallies (hours and 5-minute intervals). The one brighter square would give the number of added minutes. If some sore of analog(?) design could be used to give a gradual shading depth during the course of 60 seconds, then you could even build in a rough visual signal about how far along within the course of a given minute the current time is. This would make for a more living, constantly subtly changing clockface.What do you think?The second idea I had, which is still half-baked, revolved around playing with primary colors and secondary ones. If either a white or blue or green or red square were to move towards (or suddenly be) grey, purple, yellow, or orange -- then this could also serve as a signal about how many minutes, 0 thru 4, to add.Anyway, just messing around with the concept. I could see how the software coding for adding a third tally would not present huge problems, but have no idea what complexity it introduces in the hardware.~RS
Here are some pictures. I failed in producing the original pcb so i decided to take the the design one step simpeler by using an arduino nano and a ds1307 module.Then I needed to fabricate a custom pcb to house the parts. In Fritzing that is quite easy. Quite happy with the result. Still have to fabricate the back lid.I will be using the fibonacci clock in the classes R&D that i teach. And showing off to colleagues off course :-).
Hah, its a bit quick and dirty, but it works. I am a teacher in biology and research&development to youngster aging from 12 to 17 years old in the Netherlands.Your clocki s a demonstration of what can emerge when creativity and technology meet.... ingenuity! For over two month's now, I have a lot of fun with your clock on a daily basis. Designing the custom pcb, the woodworking, sourcing the parts, the build and, off course the final result. THANK YOU FOR SHARING THE FIBONACCI CLOCK IN THE OPEN SOURCE MANNER.Maybe there is a market for ready made clocks in the Netherlands....;-)

Hi,Your clock looks great! I like the way you built your circuit ... What and where are you teaching? Thanks for sharing with the community!Phil
Some chinese ledstrips come with 5 wires; 2 white (both ground) 2 red (both 5v) and a green wire to drive the leds. You can clip off the extra red and white wires.
That's awesome! Would love to see the final result! Thanks for sharing!
Hi ravijag,The LEDs are driven by the WS2811 LED driver ... you only need three wires connected to an SPI port to drive all the LED independently.
Are you trying to connect the ledstrip to the pcb?
I recently finished my first fibonacci lamp. I had some trouble producing my own pcb so i moved to a ready made arduino board and a ds 1307 breakout. Now I only have to make small pcb to accomodate the buttons.
Sure you can... The Fritzing file is in the git repo. You can also find the pub at https://store.basbrun.com if you want to go faster! :)
Hello, All the schematics are in the git repo on github. P.
Can we convert the double sided pcb to single sided one???
But how to programme it???
not sure what to think about thishttp://conception-web-eclipse.com/
Hey, Philippe...Congratulations for this awesome project! Answering your question from two days ago, I'm from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and I received the link for your project in a Instructable's tweet earlier today. Funny that I only realized that your article was posted a year ago when you mentioned it in your comment. :-) - mcutin
Awwwh. It's not for sale? I have to build it? I like the pretty colors. - BarbaraW82
That's really cool. Do you think is possible to merge your project with a INKA CALCULATOR ( YUPANA ) http://www.quipus.it/english/Andean%20Calculators.pdf - ccarpio2
Cool project! Congratualtions on your Kickstarter campaign. I've posted a linl / pic of your clock on Pinterest, hope it helps!!
