Build a Dot Matrix Display Space Invaders Clock with Arduino
You don't have to spend a fortune in money or time to build something fun with Arduino, instead you just need a little imagination or humour.
One interesting example of this is by Instructables member smooth_jamie who brings us an LED matrix clock powered by Arduino.
However apart from displaying the time, at the press of a button you can destroy a Space Invader - for fun and to help relieve boredom or stress during these trying times. Check it out in the video below:
This is a fun project you can easily make yourself - visit the project page to get started.
And if you're interested in doing this yourself, PMD Way has a you covered with a wide range of parts, such as:
- Arduino Nano-compatible board
- MAX7219-style LED dot matrix display
- Real-time clock module
- jumper wires
- and much more...
