New Year Countdown Project

at 5:04 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


Brian Dougherty has made this cool New Year Countdown Project for one reason. That is to let us ring in the new year with style! He will be broadcasting the results of the project for the world to see on his Ustream page (also embedded below for your viewing pleasure). Us in the electronic field love to use segmented displays to display numbers and Brian is the same, only thing is he has scaled up the display to 40 feet! It will be synchronized to music and fireworks. I can imagine that the neighbors either love it or hate it. 🙂

Happy New Year to everyone from Hacked Gadgets!
