Arduino-Powered Laser Clock

Here’s a fun and stylish project you can make from discarded RC car parts and dollar store laser pointers: an Arduino-powered laser clock. Using easily sourced parts, including a Blanda Blank stainless steel salad bowl from IKEA, over-blogger @ Zouliv wired up a couple of lasers to an Arduino to tell time. The left hand tells time by the hour and the hand on the right by the minute. Schematic and suggested hour/minute decal placement are available here. [via IKEAHacker]
