Plot Clock

Looking for a unique project to develop your skills? Sick of telling the time on boring analog or digital clocks? With this awesome project from Kjetil Egeland you can build your own “plot clock”.

Plot Clock

This clock uses servos to draw the time on a white board, rub the time out, and then redraw the time. All of this is controlled using an Arduino Uno and a real time clock module to keep the clock in time!  This project is sure to be a hit with your friends and put your knowledge to the test. You can checkout the “plot clock” in action below or find out more at the following link.

 If you are looking for an Arduino board to work on this hack why not check out the Freetronics “Eleven” Arduino Compatible Board.  


The Eleven is just like an Arduino Uno (and 100% compatible), however the Freetronics team have made a number of improvements to the Arduino Uno design such as adding in a prototyping area, using a micro-USB connector and many more. These improvements mean that the Eleven is as easy to use as possible and is of the highest quality! To find out more about the fantastic Freetronics Eleven check out the following link. The Eleven has just come back into stock so order soon to avoid missing out!
