Was it obvious that this was what I was up to? -
The motivation for the #clockandbawls was the beauty of the #bawls bottle. Nothing else is quite like it, from the deep blue glass to the unique shape. They are too beautiful to just throw away (I may have built up a small stash of empty glass bottles). The bottle on the left is untouched, while the one on the right has been essentially been turned into a "diffused" bottle. I really like the deep-electric blue that this bottle gives off.
The clock tells time in binary, using 4 bottles for hours, 6 for minutes, and 1 to keep track of seconds for a total of 11 bottles per clock. This drove the size of the PCB to its insane length. Sure, there were other ways to go about this, like smaller boards with connectors, or wires (bleh), but I went with one long board for one simple reason: BECAUSE I CAN! -
Next I need to do some woodworking and create the base for the clock!
