Greetings smoke-eaters. It has been a while since ol’ Sopwith published a blog post. That is because I have been working hard on another clock project.
For those of you who do not want to read the rest of this post, here is the datasheet.
A while ago, I came across a very cool Thingiverse project by a French Maker comrade named jeje95. He created a replica of the time-circuit in the Delorean filmed in the classic movie Back to the Future. Certainly one of the best movies ever produced, with a near cult-like following to this day.
jeje95 also produced a pretty funny video of his creation, that I highly recommend you watch.
I produced one of these clocks, and as all Makers are obligated to do, I decided to make it better. I ditched the Arduino for a Raspberry Pi Zero, added a much better real-time hardware clock (RTC), and a whole lot more.
