A project log for Heroineclock II

Giant clock from a PIC18F6585, 135 cheap LEDs, foam core posterboard, hot glue, lots of hot glue

All the lion kingdom's LED displays were made before 3D printing arrived, even the outdoor thermometer.  3D printed white PLA actually could make a good diffuser.  The lighting isn't as even as some clocks, but much better than heroineclock II.  This guy threw a lot more money at store bought components instead of making everything from scratch.  There are individually addressible LED strips which can show different colors, a much more powerful computer which gets time from wifi, a much heavier enclosure which requires a lot more hardware to mount on a wall.  His other projects are manely toys, but there are a few good ideas.  Lions actually want the time to drift fast instead of precisely track wifi.  It could benefit from 3D printed diffusers, but not replacement of the LEDs.
