Hi, I'm trying to work out how best to approach a project I'd like to build... The Arduino seems like it should do it but I'm afraid I'm struggling with working out the best place to start.

What I want to create is a clock which works by showing the time as a number of illuminated light bulbs.

So I would have the following setup of lightbulbs from left to right: Hours - Tens x 2 Hours - Units x 9 Minutes - Tens x 5 Minutes - Units x 9 Seconds - Tens x 5 Seconds - Units x 9

So to show the time 16:25:36 we would have... one light, six lights, two lights, five lights, three lights, six lights.

I'm assuming I should be able to work out the time and then break that down into component parts then use this to light up the relevant bulbs... but I'm not sure how to translate this into practice.

I can find lots of examples of binary clocks but nothing that seems to quite work like this.

Any help/guidance would be much appreciated... my electronics is pretty rusty as is my coding, but I'm willing to try and learn.

Thanks. Matt
