Although designing an Arduino-based binary clock seems to be a rite of passage these days, I'd like to highlight the binary clock in this article as it hasn't stayed as a prototype, instead the maker has come up with a genuinely good-looking final product. Furthermore, the user interface is simple and the snooze button is a home-made capacitative touch-switch - which is made from simple aluminium foil. See the clock in action below:

This would make a great permanent project or even a gift. For more informaiton, schematic and code visit the instructions page here. And for more news, updates and items of interest.please follow us on twitter, Facebook and Google+.

To get started with your own Arduino-controlled binary clock we have a range of Arduino boards, real-time clock modules, LEDs and protoshields for mounting external circuitry. Or if a touch-switch for a snooze button doesn't interest you - consider a whopping great button like this instead:
