Does anyone here ever watch the drama TV series, “Life on Mars”? For those of you that didn’t know what the heck of this thing, then just ignore it! Ok, you can ignore the drama TV series, but not with this bizarre stuff, “Mars clock”…
Believe it or not, it’s quite a simple project. Firstly, you can use the spare old LCD module (it would be better with backlight), a weird 16 button keyboard and last but not the least, a PIC16F877A microcontroller!
After it, you can build up a monster Martian Clock on the spot. Hmm…, it seems that you’re doubt about the project, isn’t it? As you might think that there are over hundreds of PIC clocks on the Net, why don’t you need to create another one here?
Well, here are the solid reasons that can convince you to do so:
- This Mars Clock is totally different than other, where it has 16 timers and it can be independently paused/restarted;
- It also has 16 alarms with configurable sounds and actions;
- Beside of the Mars and Earth’s timing, it can show Jupiter times as well;
- It equipped with the external AC power with built-in rechargeable battery.
To be honest, this Mars clock is the most superior stuff that you can ever have in your life!
