I know it’s a common project, but I thought I’d make my own Raspberry-Pi powered Time Circuits, looking similar to those seen in the Back to the Future movies.
The goal is to have three calendar/clock displays (red/yellow/green) that you can set via a keypad. The displays will each have 3 16-segment alphanumeric displays for the month, then 7-segment displays for date/year/hour/minute.
