Multimeter Clock – Styled after the Simpson 260 Multimeter

Multimeter Clock – Styled after the Simpson 260 Multimeter! Alan writes -

I had great fun working on a cool Multimeter Clock project which got picked up by Design News for their Gadget Freak series. I thought it would be cool to have a clock that looks like an old Simpson 260 multimeter. The clock consists of three multimeters, the first meter displays hours, the second displays minutes and the last displays seconds. A 16F628A PIC microcontroller keeps track of time and outputs a calculated current to each meter to display the current time.

    sort of a twist on the “current” time.
