Lumie style alarm clock

Postby xanthic » Mon Jan 28, 2013 9:36 pm

I'm going to make an alarm clock, the sort with light source to wake you up in the morning. I've hooked a Chronodot to Adafruit LED backpack kit running on Arduino. More soon.

Sounds like a nice little project ; one that can be customised quite nicely too! You going to get a laser cut enclosure for it?

Yes, I am planning on a laser-cut box. I have the design in my head, just need to get it drawn up and mailed in :) And about 200 Superflux ordered!
Just been reading up on multiplexing buttons. I've done hardware debouncing before and that works really well. Might try something a bit more adventurous this time.

Smoked plexi on order! I'll get the floods with LEDs listed tomorrow. A twitter reminder would probably help though! :D

Decent guide to hardware debouncing of buttons. Software debouncing is a pain.
