sntp display demo 2012 05 10 012 LCD Clock Syncs via Network
David Moisan wanted to outfit his local cable access station with a network-synchronized clock, but since an off-the-shelf NTP clock made for television stations would have cost around $1,000, purchasing even a single clock was out of the question. Not one to be deterred, he hacked up his own from a #Twatch, the ethernet-enabled LCD backpack from our friends at Dangerous Prototypes. Head over to David’s blog to check out the code and the incredibly thorough manual he wrote for the project. While this is is the first embedded microcontroller project David has ever finished, he assures us it won’t be his last. [via Dangerous Prototypes]
