An Open Source, hackable Digital Clock

Posted on Friday, July 19th, 2013 in Arduino, clock by DP

Here’s a cool DOTKLOK by Andrew O’Malley, an open source Arduino-based clock that displays a series of unique time-telling animations:

A fanstastic Open Source Arduino-based clock that can display the time in many different ways: if not enough, one can also add his own personal animation.

Via Open Electronics.

    Awesome Work with the matrix!! Great Project..

  2. It’s a really cool project. But it’s almost a bit of cheating using a pre-made matrix unit from Sure Electronics…

    I’d go crazy waiting to see the time during the animations when flipping the digits – they are far too long. But since it’s open source it should be easy to fix yourself :)

    Very nice clock !
    I would like to buy a kit but it seems that the shop owner is still on vacation :-(

    Bo :o)

  4. Just a heads up that I still have a few original Dotklok kits left, and am discounting them 15% until the end of August 2015:


  5. Just use the code DOTKLOK15 . . .

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
