Project Complete
Nick writes – “Here are brief details of a project I completed using a PIC 16F73 Micro-controller. I’d seen persistence of vision clocks, like these from Bob Blick and Daryl Bender, on the Internet and wanted to take things a step further. I wanted to make a display which displayed a clock and a spinning map of the World.” – [via] Link.
