Inside this tiny, card-sized casing lives a fully programmable, open-source, analogue and digital Foxie CardClock! This clock fulfils all of your pocket timepiece needs with a clever combination of beautifully designed circuit board, translucent grey faceplate, and a colourful 3D printed case.
The well layed out and brightly lit PCB display contains two rings of twelve LEDs – used as an analogue clock face with the ability to display a brilliant colour wheel light show! Below this is a fully configurable 17 by 5 LED matrix display which shows the time in a conventional digital format – also capable of portraying the time in binary, with no extra programming required! These displays are controlled by an onboard light sensor, ensuring that the brightness of the LEDs is always suited to the setting.
This device arrives fully assembled and ready to use or program to your needs – and comes in a choice of bold and vivid colours! It contains an onboard real-time clock, which, combined with WiFi synchronisation, means that this clock will always be right on time! Powered by an ESP8266 (a well loved WiFi-enabled microchip), it’s fully programmable using C++.
The files for the 3D printed case and more are available on Foxie Products GitHub, meaning that you can modify and print the case to fit your needs! Why not install holes, or hooks, to mount the clock on your bedside or to a backpack?
