I got this idea for a while but I never had the chance to try it out. Friday, a workmate gave me a LCD shield for Arduino and I thought that was the right time to build a clock that comunicate the time through QR-codes. Of course, it's extremely useless (as most of the clocks nowadays).
In the video below you can see the clock booting up and loading 3 different qr-codes (3 minutes)
As all my ideas, it is first sketched on my blog and, as soon as I got time, is realized and published here.
So, if you want to have an insight on my future project have a look at genteautoreggente.com
Step 1: The hardware
Step 2: The softwareIn order to make the clock to work we need some software on the pc and some on the arduino. All the needed code is in the 3 zip files attached to this step.
Step 3: Future workI'm planning to build a cool case for the QR-clock. I'm searching for collaborations for the design of the case and for the fabbrication (laser cutting/3d printing).
Anyone who want to help me can send me a private message. I can offer instructables badges and 'maybe' some months of pro account!
