Counting seconds in binary using an Arduino

Counting seconds in binary using an Arduino from K. Latham on Vimeo.

I’m learning how to write programs for an Arduino this week. This was the results of my first test program. I was to learning how to use the digitalWrite() function. To make it a little fun I designed a simple binary seconds clock.

It’s going to be a fun couple of weeks getting back up to speed with C programming and learning how to use the Arduino platform.

Oh, the LEDs were just quickly put on there by a coworker to test with. That’s why it doesn’t look very neat.

If you’re interested in building your own binary clock just search for "Arduino and Binary Clock", you'll find more than a few great examples.
