Hello! I am an engineering student interested in doing some projects for fun and to learn a bunch of new things. I have a few ideas for projects to do, however nothing is very usable except for this one.
I would like to make my own "smart ring" that you wear on your finger that just 'simply' tells the time. I only want the time because I think that would be useful (and perhaps possible). However, I am an aerospace engineering student, so my knowledge for electronics is limited and that's where I need concept help.
There are very small digital displays that may work for this project, but it may be too difficult. I am also thinking about showing the time with lights to make it simpler (24 light total, 12 for hours 12 for 5 minute periods or 12 lights total. I think 12 lights would be the best starting point to figure things out initially). Does anyone know if this would be possible to achieve? I am thinking it can be done if I used a small bluetooth chip that told the lights when to turn on or there might be a very easy way to make a clock with small electronics that I'm just unaware of and unable to find through the internet.
I could go on about my thought process, but I want to keep this first post somewhat short.
Thank you for any responses and I could go into more detail on what I have in mind for the lights if my explanation was confusing. If this isn't possible but you have a project idea that would help me learn this type of stuff, let me know, I always love learning new things and it's the reason for this idea in the first place.
