I am an absolute newbie when it comes to arduino/coding, so need some advice on a project.
I'm working on a clock design that will have various mechanisms to show time, date, month etc.
There will need to be 7x stepper motors, driven by an Arduino board. Each motor drives a specific element to show the correct information (i.e. 1 motor will be used to show MONTH etc.).
All motors can then be controlled by the board to rotate a given amount, at a specific time - i.e. every minute, a motor will be turned by 1/60th of a rotation.
In order to set the current date/time, there would need to be an interface on PC to allow the user to move each element forwards or backwards to adjust - or better yet, grab the current date/time from the computer.
What kind of setup would I need to achieve this?
If possible, would there be any way to add bluetooth connectivity, to allow the user to adjust the date/time with an app?
In future, we plan on scaling this design down, to the size of a wristwatch (using tiny stepper motors, control board (maybe nano?) and battery, with micro USB charge). Not sure what options there are for this, but open to any advice.
As I said, I am a total newbie to this environment, but I am an engineer, with light electronics knowledge. So any help on this is appreciated.
