Tell Time Contest

A project log for TIRO Vibrating Watch

TIRO (Time is Running Out) is a watch that vibrates every few minutes to remind the user that time in this world is quickly running out.

I just recently learned about the Tell Time Contest here on Hackaday and immediately thought that TIRO is a good fit for it.

I feel that my project is unique enough and has a function that can easily tell time (Although without a display). These tick two out of the three judging criterias. What's lacking is in the craftsmanship department.

I might re-build TIRO and add some improvements to it, like having an external crystal for accurate timing. I will also need to ditch protoboards and have a proper one printed. And for the case, maybe a 3D printed case?

I'm not fully committed to joining yet as I do have a lot of other projects that are pending. Updating TIRO has been in my backlog for quite awhile though and this might be the perfect time to revive it.

We'll see.
