This build uses a couple of WS2812B (or better known as Neopixels) to create the sunrise effect. These LEDs will be controlled by an Arduino pro micro that keeps the time using a DS3231 real-time clock. The time can be set on a seven-segment display with the help of capacitive touch buttons.
All parts of this project are available online and could be build using the instructions below.
