Clock is use to show the exact time to the people and can you ever imagine the life without the existing of clocks? Yep, it must be a terrible and horrible situation indeed.
Today, you’re very lucky, as you’ll have the chance to get involve hacking the binary clock! Oh, I can sense some doubts here. Ok, I’m going to try my best to clear out the mystery here…
For your information, a binary clock is a clock that displays traditional sexagesminal time in binary format. In the very beginning, it only shows each decimal digit of sexagesimal time as a binary value, but it also present in true binary form in nowadays.
It’s nothing hard to hack binary clock. First of all, you have to use three pieces of acrylic, and cut a hole on each of them. The top piece has four holes for the mounting screws, where are holding the whole thing together and the “Time to Hack” etch.
The extra space on the square piece of acrylic is being used to cut out spacers that can be fitted between each of the layers.
For this project, you’re better to use LilyPad than Arduino Diecimila. However, if you do use the Arduino Diecimila, remember to use header pins and solder as well!
