by Andy Doro & Dano Wall

https://andydoro.com/wordclockdesktop/

A word clock which uses NeoPixel RGB LEDs for a color shifting effect.

Hardware:

Software:

This code requires the following libraries:

Wiring:

  • Solder DS1307 breakout to Trinket Pro, A2 to GND, A3 to PWR, A4 to SDA, A5 to SCL
    If you leave off / clip the unused SQW pin on the RTC breakout, the breakout can sit right on top of the Trinket Pro for a compact design! It'll be difficult to reach the Trinket Pro reset button, but you can activate the bootloader by plugging in the USB.
  • Solder NeoMatrix 5V to Trinket 5V, GND to GND, DIN to Trinket Pro pin 8.
