Time plotting clock

Time-Plotting-Clock

A clock that plots time:

The Time Plotting Clock mechanism is fantastically simple, 3 tiny servo motors allow the erasable marker to be moved along the drawing surface and raised when no contact with the surface is desired. This allows the pen to write the time. There is also a tiny eraser located in the upper right corner, when the next minute is ready to be drawn the pen grabs the marker and erases the previous time before drawing the new time.

  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
