Mini Word Clock Available Online!

Remember Alden's tiny word clock?  Well he and Riley have taken that project to the next level by offering 100 of these clocks online for $59!  The production version looks great with a clear back panel. Besides its handsome appearance, this is the most affordable word clock available.  Congrats to Alden and Riley!

Alden is a contributor author to Make Magazine and a founding member of HacDC.

Square Pegs


How do you fit a square peg into a round hole?

The set of holes on the right has been drilled out to accommodate the square leads of the LED.  Compare those to the set of holes on the left which are the original size.

Anool is drilling out one board (over 700 holes) and we are getting the rest drilled at the factory (thousands of holes).  The only problem is that we loose the connect through the board and will need to solder on both sides.  Hope Anool can get a board built up this week and test the rest of the circuitry!

Rev two anyone?

I wanted to see how difficult it would be to add another language.  German!  Now for some cool graphical effects.  Not too difficult, but we need a real German to tweak it for us, volunteers?  Code available here.
