After the incredible success of the Solder : Time, we compiled the majority of what was on people’s wish lists for the next version of our Solder : Time Watch.
After a great deal of brainstorming, component sourcing, code-wrangling, and laser cut prototyping, we unveiled the Solder : Time II at MakerFaire Bay Area 2012.
• Solder : Time II’s microcontroller is the ATmega328. Use the Arduino IDE to hack / reprogram
•Display is 4 x (5 by 7) matrix LED modules
•Two button interface
•Displays text / time / numbers / graphics etc…
•Create graphics animations & Scrolling text
•Standard .1″ spaced FTDI header for easy reprogramming
•ATmega serial port open & available – attach accessories
•Low power sleep mode
We had a lot of fun building this new watch, and made it as hack-able as possible. Available as a KIT, solder the through hole parts and assemble the watch body on your own. (SMD parts come pre-mounted / tested and programed). Don’t feel like soldering? The Solder : Time II is also available fully assembled — ready to wear & hack —
