I really like the resolution the maker was able to obtain using the surface mount LEDs. Check out the whole video for several different clock variations. At the end they even display a rotating cube. Cool! Unfortunately, there isn’t any more information about the build, but I will keep scouring the Internet. If you know who made this, leave a comment below and I will update the post. Thanks!

The Propeller Clock found on YouTube [older version of the clock]

Update: ArnoDeParno points us to the future commercial version of the product. Too bad it isn’t a kit. The YouTube video is really cool. Check out the comments below for all the links. Thanks ArnoDeParno!

    That is a very nice project! I would love to build one myself! Maybe my next MAKEcation :-)

    Upon checking the video on youtube, there was this video response:

    Which shows these links at the end:

    Seems like a commercial product. The first site has some more info on the clock displayed there, but no instructions on how to make one yourself unfortunately.

    YouTube was quite helpful in finding some more POV clocks. Most are based on harddrives, with LED strips added to them. Some of the project shown there have some more documentation elsewhere on the nets. After some more digging I found these:

    More info:

    Who knows, this might come in handy for anyone trying to make one of these…
