Final Project

"Smart Clock"

100%

In this section you can follow the progress of my final project

  • The Idea

    The original idea was to build an LED wooden clock, which particularity would be that the hours are represented by words and the minutes are represented by a circle. As the time goes by, the word representing the current hour is lit, and the circle representing the minutes fills itself.

  • The Design

    Once I had a better idea for my final project, came the time to work on its design. I wanted it to be simple, beautiful and elegant and to have a kind of low-tech aspect.

About me

Hi, nice to meet you ! You'll find my details bellow.

I was a digital project manager for 8 years in a communication agency in Paris. One year ago I decided to take a break and to travel for a while. I spent 6 months in New Zealand. When I went back home I decided to change profession and learn a new job. I found out about digital fabrication, then about the Fab Academy and I thought that it was a great opportunity. So here I am, highly motivated and ready to become a skilled maker and hacker :)
