John’s final project outline: Century Clock

For my final project my goal is to create a clock that can display up to 100 years of time past a certain date. It does this through six different dials all powered through independent stepper motors connected to an Arduino reading a real time clock module (thanks Becky!).

I am imagining that a clock like this could be used to mark the exact amount of time since an important event (birth of a child, anniversary, a person starting sobriety), to help mark the occasion exactly. Depending on how the building and coding goes, the resetting of the clock via a button every time it is pressed may be a feature for V2.0.

Below can be found my drawings regarding possible form, as well as my link to the outline and tools/materials list.
