Word clock with a Raspberry Pi Zero

Nice to see projects being built with the Zero now.

David Saul set himself a project over Christmas: a ‘word clock’. For this, he used a Raspberry Pi Zero and a MAX7219 chip. A ‘word clock’ is a clock made up out of a ‘crossword’ of words under which lights are placed to illuminate the correct columns and rows necessary to give a readout of the time. You can see the results of his work, including some detail of how he did it here.
