Default An idea for y'all that like playing with LEDs

The Bob-clock

Quote:
The Bob-clock is a wall-clock I have built, which uses 60 multi-color LEDs arranged in a circle to represent the small and big arm of an analog clock. If desired, it can also display the seconds with a third color. The image above shows the Bob-clock as it currently looks.

On this version, the blue light signifies the hour-hand, while the red one is the minutes, so in this image the time is about 10 minutes to 4. When both the minute and hour arms are in the same position, the colors will be mixed. On this version it turns out as a purple color.

I can't tell time regardless, but for some reason, before I read all the description that says it'* 10 min to 4, and saw that it was a clock, I guessed the time right. I guess maybe it'* all common sense? I dunnno. Wouldn't mind having that though, pretty neat idea.
