If you are looking for a very unique wristwatch and enjoying building projects using electronics, you might be interested in this new Binary Wristwatch created by engineer Njneer.
The Binary Wristwatch is fitted with superbright LEDs that are powered by a CR2032 lithium coin cell batter, that is capable of providing up to 3 months of continuous use. Watch the video below to learn more about this unique wearable wrist watch.
“I used to get the feeling that it wasn’t obvious enough that I really enjoy working with embedded systems. I decided to change that by designing a binary timepiece that is portable, easy to use, has long battery life, and has a very barebones “circuits and components” feel to it. After wearing the final product for about a month now, I feel like I was successful on all of those goals.
I’m pretty proud of this project; the clasp is a ribbon cable that doubles as the programming interface for the PIC microcontroller that drives everything. The time is displayed with superbright LEDs that are blinding at 15 mA, which means that I’m able to limit the power consumption considerably while still achieving a very readable display.
The primary purpose of this project was to get some experience working with PIC MCUs for low power applications. I played with a 16F back in college in a microcontrollers class, but I have yet to use one since. I ended up using a PIC18F24J11 for this one.”
