RetroTime-gerber1

Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week. In week 4 he came up with RetroTime, a digital clock with RGB LEDs in 12 tentacles extruding from the body of the PCB.

Next week I’ll do a slightly more advanced project than a simple breakout. I had this idea of making a very complex outline on a PCB and see if Seeedstudio and their fab house would accept it. I’m following the series Supernatural where the protagonists often stay at old motels with a lot of 50-60-70’ies decorations and furniture in them, so I decided to to a wall clock with a retro-inspired design.
