Introduction: Arduino Wireless Power POV Word Clock

I have made this little gadget for the clock contest.The basic is my previous POV published here.

Step 1: Materials:

3 -5 V DC motor, Arduino pro mini 5V 16Mhz, RTC module with backup battery, IR LED and phototransistor, LED-s, resistors, some copper wire, a piece of coaxial cable, a piece of scrap PCB.

Step 2: Just Do It...

This gadget based on my previous project which is well described. I put pictures here because I think one picture tells more than hundreds of words.

Step 3: The Display

Step 4: RTC Module

Step 5: Photo Elements

Step 6: Coils

Step 7: Final Result

Step 8: Arduino Program

    Question 7 months ago on Introduction

    Very nice, Is it possible use a d1 mini and use another arduino or pc to send rtc or data by wireless? I don't know nothing about how to program an arduino, I am just a curious guy that like make this gratest things.

    I saw your videos, including this one, but I can´t understand how do you send data to the project, could you enlighten me? I would like make it to give for my daughters, but what I know about programming is just copy and past, regards.

    Do you send data by arduino ide (serial monitor)? I can see a infrared receiver but can't see infrared transmitter. Is that cable on video for motor power and board power? Could you show some pictures of the arduino that you use to send data? Thanks so much.

    Hi I'd like to know what gauge the wire is and its size (diameter).

    Hi,
    Actually it doesn't matter. The thing is that the transmitter and receiver coil must have same gauge and number of turns. In my case the wire was 0.3-0.4 mm and the diameter was determined by the width of the pro mini. Approx: 14 turns.

    That is some intricate work. I'm very impressed you must have some good steady hands. How did you manage to make such a beautiful flat coil?

    Thank you. Making coil was not the most difficult thing in this project.

    this looks like a nice clock
    but a scematic would be nice
    and maybe some explainations
