Time plotting clock

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

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...
