  • Simple Binary Clock Using Attiny85

    I'm interested in building this clock, though I plan to down-size and compress it to the size of a watch. This is one of the more simple clocks I have seen, though I do have some questions regarding the plans and specs. With the resistors between the LEDs and the microcontroller, if I were to use a stronger resistor, would that reduce power consumption of the system? I noticed that the battery is similar to that of a watch battery, though I would like to know if you know what the power consumption of the system is, or how long that battery will last. I am aiming to have mine run for at least a year on a single battery. With the system running on the internal system clock, how accurate is the clock in the long run? Does it stray a few minutes a month, year, or not at all?…

Does it stray a few minutes a month, year, or not at all? And I know adding a 16 Mhz crystal oscillator will synchronize the system to become more accurate, though where could one be added to this wiring diagram? Finally, with the code given, would I have to use an Arduino and certain software to program the ATtiny85? I have a Raspberry pi 3B+, Spyder IDE, Anaconda, and Jupyter.

    Just seeing the first picture made me want to make myself one. If I knew you can buy a piece of meteorite I would have bought some a long time ago. Awesome idea, got any other ideas what to make with the rest of that meteorite?
