Simple LCD Clock without RTC (Using LCD Shield)

Here's a simple way to make your 16X2 LCD shield to display time and date without any RTC hardware. The codes are taken from various sources here on this site, and I just pieced them together to get it to display the time and date.

Here's the link:http://hacks2try.blogspot.com/2010/10/date-and-time-on-arduino-lcd-shield.html. Please give some feedback/suggestions on what else I can do with this setup.

alarm clock?

that is what I’m building :slight_smile:

me too!!! but i use a GLCD....

Thanks for share with us Kah Kheng!

That's a good simple clock. How do you do the alarm (if that is your next step)?

Yeah, an alarm clock would be cool. Also, if I could get the keypad on the shield to set the time and date.

Has anyone tried that yet?
