The SteelPuppet LeoNeoClock is a custom circuit board, based on the Arduino Leonardo, that turns a ring of 60 Adafruit NeoPixels into a unique wall clock.
This kit includes the clock board and a set of four 1/4 ring NeoPixels. You will need to solder them together and supply a CR1220 coin cell battery.
The clock comes with the basic 12 hour clock program installed. You may modify the source code as you see fit to add visual alarms, custom colors, or your own brand of clock operation. It also has four of the I/O ports broken out for hardware hacking. Three are analog in and one is digital I/O with PWM (pulse width modulation).
As it ships, the hour markers are orange in the am and pink in the pm. The hour hand is yellow, minute hand green, and second hand blue. It has a light sensor and automatically dims for dark rooms and brightens for light rooms. You can also manually adjust the brightness with the two buttons.
Some key features:
As a kit, you will need to solder the four NeoPixel quarter rings together to create a complete ring, and you will need to solder the board to the ring.
*There are a lot of restrictions on shipping lithium batteries, so I don’t include it. The required coin cell should be available for you locally.
I don't yet have the source code for the sketch posted anywhere. However, if you purchase, I will simply email you a zip file with the source. I do now. The links to documentation and source code are above, on the right side of the page, just below my logo.

I've been developing small robots, microcontroller boards and motor drivers with Microchip PIC processors since 2002. I added Arduinos, including custom Arduino-compatible hardware, in 2010. I've been dishing up PCB design-for-manufacturing advice on the Screaming Circuits blog since 2006, and contributing to EE-Times and other UBM publications since 2010. I'm writing a book on custom Arduino-compatible hardware.
There's a logo for "MD Galactic" on the some of the PC boards. What or who is MD Galactic?
My good friend Max Maxfield, writer / editor for EE Times, and I developed our Universal Screw-terminal proto-shield together and launched a Kickstarter as MD Galactic Enterprises. Max and I will, from time to time, develop new products or crazy ideas together as MD Galactic. As with the Universal screw-terminal proto-shield, if they work out, you'll likely see them show up here at some point.
