Qlock3 (Word Clock) Project. by iKev & Sam (Mid 2011)

 In Projects

All: I submit at Kevins request.
This project started about 3 or so years ago and took about 12-15 months to complete.
So, this being said the project has long been completed.

The Project went like this:
Kev calls and  requests I build a Qlock3, Qty: Build 2. Ended up building 3.

Their are so many pics. Ill have to revisit why etc for them but first Ill upload all the pics.

The Qlock3 itself: Premised on the one and only QLOCKTWO
And beautiful it is…
However… For our purposes it falls short in a couple of places. (for us that is)
1: Its too small
2: Do not really like the 4 outer leds.

More explaining to come….

The Final outcome:

How we got their.

Breadboard, Coding and lots of testing….
