Ring Clock Control Board

Just got some of the boards back from OSH Park and they look great!

Next step is to get the components and try them out.

In the meantime I found a bluetooth enabled Arduino platform, the Lightblue Bean. This begs the question, would it be better to set the time of the clock with buttons on the clock or with a bluetooth app?  I think the coolest solution would be to use capacitive sensors along the perimeter but the cost would be higher than I want with this project at the moment.  Thankfully, due to the modularity of the design, I can easily change the control board and upgrade the device whenever I’d like.

More info on the project soon.
