Quote From the Film of the Hour:

Cobb: Never re-create places from your memory. Always imagine new places. Ariadne: You gotta draw from stuff you know, right? Cobb: Only use details. A streetlamp or a phone booth, Never entire areas. Ariadne: Why not? Cobb: Building a dream from your memory is the easiest way to lose your grasp on what's real and what is a dream.

Arduino Alarm Clock


Back when I was 14 in 2016, I completed my first coding project, which was an alarm clock. Although it does not amount to much when compared to my ability now, I am proud of what I was able to accomplish with so little experience.

The clock was made with an Arduino Uno, along with a compatible LCD, potentiometer, and buzzer/piezo.

A time can be set in the clock's code specifying when the alarm will go off, which it will continue to do for 15 minutes (a long time, I know, but my track record for waking up on time is not the best).

While the original build was housed in a wooden case, it had to be disassembled, so I have recreated it online via Tinkercad's circuit simulator.



I hope this old project of mine will inspire others to take up programming, as it did for me.

See below for a flow chart I made at the time depicting the code for the clock.
