This clock uses the GPIO pins on the ESP8266-01 module to connect to 2 Adafruit 7 segment display backpacks. A momentary ON switch is also used to put the clock into program mode. A basic schematic includes a 3.3v regulator, the ESP8266, the two displays and the button. The clock can use a 5v input such as a USB charger.
