Day Clock

Sometimes we just need to know what day it is

Similar projects worth following
This was created at the beginning of the pandemic when the two week lockdown was approaching a month and the days were starting to blend together.

For those long quarantine weeks where the days blend together. This clock uses a servo so the clock hand always points at the center of the day, it does not "sweep" through the day smoothly like a normal clock would; at midnight, the hand moves to the next day. Thanks to the gearing, this works with a normal 180 degree servo. Code is included, just update to your WiFi information!
