Chronulieta cigar box clock

Arduino Technology Workshop
Chronulieta cigar box clock


Jared Boone, of ShareBrained Technology, was kind enough to send me a brand-new Chronulator 2.0 kit. It’s an Arduino-compliant analog clock (or anything you want) that uses panel meters as the display. I’ve written up a full review for MAKE volume 17 (verdict: great kit).

This is a photo I took of the clock I built. I used a cigar box for a case, mounted the board on top, and printed some stock clock faces for the meters (I’m dying to redesign those to match the lovely Romeo Y Julieta typography when I get some time). My more pressing modification is to add some LEDs for face illumination.
