binary burst1 Binary Burst LED Clock

Maker, Mike Szczys, sends word of his latest creation, the Binary Burst LED clock. It’s a unique clock that tells time using binary code. The clock itself is controlled by an ATtiny44 and is comprised of a bare PCB with LED “spires” that radiate out from the center, like a traditional wall clock. [Thanks, Mike!]

Each spire has three digits, when the inner and outer digits are lit it shows a binary five and the next spire starts counting. Hours are displayed as a red LED corresponding to the positions on an analog clock. Here it is 12:54.
