Build a large "Master Clock"

Next in the never-ending series of clocks powered by an Arduino comes the "Master Clock" by Australian enthusiast Jed Hodson. In this example Jed has used one of our Dot Matrix Displays as the output device for a very large alarm clock, which keeps accurate time using a RTC module and also offers scope for display type modification. However with the supplied example you have an easy to read clock that wouldn't look out of place in many situations:

You can make this type of clock in less than an hour with the right parts, so visit Jed's Instructable to get started. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

 As used in the review mentioned above, check out our Freetronics Dot Matrix Displays. They're simple to use, yet very bright for indoor and outdoor situations. Available in various colours, the 32 x 16 LED matrix can display text and graphics quite easily - and can be daisy-chained together for extended displays.
