Have you ever wanted to create your very watch? If you have then you are sure to be interested in the new video and instructions which have been published by the Adafruit Industries website.
The NeoGeo watch is created using FLORA the Arduino wearable programmable board and its GPS module to tell the time using a ring of pixels and the skills required to create the watch are classed as intermediate-level. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the NeoGeo Watch project and see it in action.
Adafruit explains how to read the time on their funky DIY watch: “The circuit sandwich becomes the face of the watch, and you’ll use a tactile switch to make a mode selector. The watch has timekeeping (one LED for hours and one for minutes), GPS navigation (customize your waypoint in the provided Arduino sketch), and compass modes.
Make your own LED timepiece! Use FLORA and its GPS module to tell time with a ring of pixels. A leather cuff holds the circuit and hides the battery. The watch is chunky but still looks and feels great on tiny wrists!”
