There are plenty of people out there that abhor the idea of clocks and everything they entail (the passing of time, deadlines and more), but the Arduino Etch-A-Sketch Clock puts a playful spin on it that most will be hard-pressed not to appreciate. As its name gives away, it is a time-teller made out of the retro toy.

The Arduino Etch-A-Sketch Clock has been attached to a system of pulleys that turn the knobs that form the lines on the screen. These two pulleys are controlled by a pre-existing body of code that, with a pair of overpowered stepper motors mounted a frame of acrylic sheets, turn the knobs to tell the time. It was created by Instructables member dodgey99. Dodgey99 has provided a step-by-step guide to create one's own.
