Open Clock Project

Open Clock Project

The Open Clock Project is…

  • An intuitive, adaptive, and delightful touchscreen alarm clock.
  • Easy to see with uncorrected vision, and easy to set with confidence, even when tired.
  • An open hardware work-in-progress.
  • Powered by Arduino, curiosity, and ignorance.

This is a journal of the design and prototyping process, starting with a February 2012 rant about what I dislike about every alarm clock I’ve met. I didn’t know much about electronics, but that hasn’t stopped me yet!

My discoveries are recorded here, for the benefit of present and future Citizens of the Makerverse.

Lots of Adafruit products in this project, including the Adafruit Proto Shield, Chronodot, Wave Shield, and Arduino UNO, and more!
