Work--Play Clock

A project log for Santa's Shop

This is a techno/art installation to be displayed in the community--similar to old time holiday window displays.

The eye blinking work/play clock is now active.

The Arduino sketch for the servo motors is available on this site. This is somewhat fashioned around "Grandfather Clock" on the "Captain Kangaroo" tv show from ages ago. We start with the eyes open in "Play" mode.

When we shift to "Work" mode, they eyes start to droop.

On the next blink cycle, the eyes droop more.

The eyes open, right eye blinks twice and we are back to "Play."
