Exuberant Clock

Dave Molmen has sent in the picture build log of his custom¬†Exuberant Clock. The clock concept is very interesting. The center of the clock slowly rotates, to read the time all you need to do is see which slot the brass circle is in, this is the hour representation and what minute indication it is beside. The clock face moves the brass indicator across the minute number one per minute and when the full hour has expired the clock advances to allow the time indicator to slide into the next hour indication. Thanks to Dave for turning to the Gear Clock kit electronics as the base electronics controller for this clock. Since this clock doesn’t operate in the same way the Gear Clock did some custom firmware was needed.¬†
