Analog LED Clock next version

at 7:15 am. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks


DIY electronics is all about revisions. Make something work the first time and make it look nice the second time around. We featured this Analog LED Clock last year, cosmetically it looked fine and worked great. Wellyb00t has been hard at work making a new version which you can see on his Youtube channel. Instructions and details on the clock can be found here.

    Nice build!

    I’m just wondering if you’ve considered adding a sweep hand (seconds) – since this is an LED based project, it has more of a contemporary look rather than retro and so I think the sweep hand would be appropriate.

    Oh, and I think the digital readout part has to be abandoned – very confusing and hard to read (or 8:28 was a rather bad example).

    Also, have you tried to experiment with PWM controlling LEDs’ brightness to change from 100% at the hub to something like %25 at the tip for an illusion of the hands being little thicker in the center? I don’t know if this would look as intended in real life but may be worth a try…

    Hi
    have now got a seconds (sweephand) but as there’s 24 hand positions looks ok but slow as each position takes 2-3 seconds before moving on, the digital mode takes a little time to get used to but can now be switched off, I’m also working on a bar mode which can be seen on some of the spinning pov clocks.
