Your very personal sun. It highlights the probably most intuitive interpretation of time, which is a new day beginning with the sunrise and ending with the sunset.
Hello SUN keeps track of the solar position during the day, turns blue over night and performs cute little sunsets and sunrises. It gives you a hint how much daylight you have left or when you can expect the sun to come up again, so that you can use your day or night more effectively.
I used an Arduino Pro Mini 5V 328, a DS1307 RTC-Chip as well as an ULN2003 for the stepper motor. The sun itself gets it's color by an RGB LED. Programmed with the help of the fabulous Sunrise library.
