A Home Info System (a.k.a Clock) Which displays the Time, Date, Humidity, Temperature, Barometric pressure and Moon Phase.

I finally got rid of the dvd player that was only used for the time it displayed (the player itself stopped working years ago). But that left a large empty space especially noticeable when ever I looked over for time based answers.

So I recently bought a Gixie clock that broke after a few hours so I decided to build a decent one myself.

    Build a board to store all the components. The bme280 will be in its own compartment away from any heat from the electronics.

    Having acces to a laser cutter takes your ideas to the next level.

    I use these little ws2812 boards they're about 10mm x 50mm, you can find the here.

    Soldered all the LED string and put double sided tape on them.

    One string done.

    Looped the LED string around the support plate.

    Stacked all the plates "et-Voila!" all the units are done. Some of them still have the protective film on them.
