I got inspired that tweets like "well happy 32/12/2020 everyone" so why not make a date gadget based on this idea?
It uses ESP8266 to connect to an NTP server and get the current date. Then it does some magic, and displays the 2020ized date to a TM1638-based display.
  • 1 × ESP8266
  • 1 × TM1638 seven-segment display controller

Neat. What happens if it's still terrible after Mar 9? Month becomes 15? 🤔

To meet the display constraint of 2 digits for the day, 99/12/2020 will be followed by 1/13/2020.

I had a hard time finding a simple way to get NTP time. Then I found Dave's code.
