For the "Make Something Big" assignment on the Fab Academy schedule, I wanted to design something useful which used material as efficiently as possible. I designed these chairs so that two could be cut out of one sheet of plywood. I also tried to make them as ergonomic as I could and easy to assemble without fixings or tools.

Binary Clock

This is a binary clock, arranged in a circular manner using different colour LEDs to indicate the time. It is built using the Arduino Lilypad microcontroller. Red indicate hours (9 in this case), blue minutes (6) and yellow seconds (20). So the time shown is 9:06:30.
