I'm designing an installation where I'd like the environment to change based on the position of the hands of a clock. Think of the grandfather clock in Wayne Manor that opens into the Batcave when the hands are set to the time of Batman's parents death.
While I have a good grasp of how I would use the input, I'm having some trouble conceiving of a mechanism to read the position of each hand at any given time. In terms of skillset I'm a decent coder and making good progress in my understanding of electronic components and principles.
Hopefully this is the right forum and my first post isn't too embarrassing!
