Project Overview

It was only a matter of time before Dr. D-Flo built another clock out of NeoPixel LEDs. He stumbled upon Adafruit's word clock project. While the concept was cool, Dr. D-Flo felt like the design lacked style. By nature a word clock is not practical, so it needs to look classy. Therefore, Dr. D-Flo decided to make his clock with an anodized aluminum face. He did not stop at one but ended up building 5 clocks!
