Raspberry Pi enthusiasts or makers searching for a project to keep them busy this weekend may be interested in a new DIY Raspberry Pi alarm clock created by “Snipe”. It has kindly published full instructions, component list and code to enable you to build your very own Raspberry Pi alarm clock to wake you in style.
The project is particularly good if you have older Raspberry Pi mini PC systems just lying around as the project should work with any older Raspberry Pi computer and allows you to put older hardware to good use or even the amazingly affordable Raspberry Pi Zero.
“In this tutorial I will make an alarm clock with at its core the Raspberry Pi board. This project uses the wiringPi libraries (by Gordon Henderson), for programming the GPIO in C in a style similar to the Arduino IDE. WiringPi must be installed for this project. WiringPi uses it’s own pin identification scheme. All pin numbers mentioned in the program or in the text are WiringPi references unless otherwise specified.”
