Led Word Clock

Posted on  by admin

The LED Word Clock will change the way you see the time, literally.

The LED Word Clock is an awesome housewarming gift, perfect for that loved one of yours that appreciates minimalist style and elegant design.

Forget numbers, the LED Word Clock displays the time as text! It’s easy to set, easy to read. And tons of fun to have around the home or office. Instead of two hands or a digital display, the LED Word Clock shows the current time as words in bright white LED light. The face of the Word Clock consists of the letters (either printed on transparent foil or laser cut out of cardboard). Behind every letter hides one led of the RGB led strip. Since the RIBBA frame measures 23x23cm and we use a RGB led strip consisting of 60 leds per meter (so 100cm/60leds=1.67cm per led), we can fit 23cm/1.67=13.8 leds in one row.

How does it work?

Unlike traditional wall clocks that tick and display the time with hour and minute hands, the LED Word Clock displays the time in words. It shows the time in five minute intervals, illuminating the relevant word depending on the time. So for example, 10:55 would be displayed as “IT IS FIVE MINUTES TO ELEVEN”.

Who should I buy this for?

The LED Word Clock would be perfect for a bachelor, any proud owner of a man cave, any office owner or any one that loves simplistic and sexy elegance in their lives.

What’s the verdict?

We recommend buying the LED Word Clock for anyone that hates ugly design and cheap round clocks from their local IKEA. This gift will inspire awe and make a unique, and timeless addition to their home, no pun intended.

Project Overview

It was only a matter of time before Dr. D-Flo built another clock out of NeoPixel LEDs. He stumbled upon Adafruit's word clock project. While the concept was cool, Dr. D-Flo felt like the design lacked style. By nature a word clock is not practical, so it needs to look classy. Therefore, Dr. D-Flo decided to make his clock with an anodized aluminum face. He did not stop at one but ended up building 5 clocks!
