“Time Flies Like An Arrow
Fruit Flies Like A Banana”

This little ditty has always made me chuckle, and especially so when I see the penny drop and someone suddenly gets the joke. So, what better than to design another clock covered with fruit flies. In fact, they are so numerous and voracious that every minute they eat and fly away with the pixels of each of the clock digits. The more digits that change, the more flies arrive to eat them!

The TIME FLIES Clock is built using the same Arduino hardware and 20×9 Addressable LED panel that I used for my DICE CLOCK. The electronics consist of a simple PCB containing a discrete ATM328 chip and a real-time clock module. A header socket is used to connect a USB serial interface module for programming,

Simple as FLY?
