Digits Finally Working

A project log for Gummi Worm Clock

I forgot to build something for the Bay Area Maker Faire Bring A Hack event. I started this on April 7th. The Faire is May 16th.

I can't say I'm completely happy with it - I'm pretty sure I screwed up something on the colon LEDs, and a Raspi really isn't the right tool for this (but a Pi2 would...), but it works.

Now it's just a matter of turning it into a clock. I'm still trying to wrap my head around how the programming for that is going to go. After that, it's done. Until I repurpose a Pi Hat prototyping thing as a microcontroller breakout board or something...

digit down sounded like it's broken :D

Oh, I bought five. I knew something would happen. Something did happen, and I'm too lazy to desolder it.

In fact, something almost happened to a second digit... they don't mix well with heat guns...
