The Arduino platform offers a wide range of options for many DIY-loving people to create a variety of projects. While not every product is practical, it can at least make people “shine” – such as the Sequino sequin flip clock for you in this article. Like flippable sequins used in certain clothing, pillows, toys and other products, the wearer can “depict” the character pattern by tapping his finger.

Sequino’s principle is similar, except that it is given to electrical machinery to perform the “dial” description instruction slot of clock numbers. However, this Arduino Nano R3-driven clock is too slow to perform motion, with delays of up to 4 minutes.
Sequino’s name comes from Sequins, which show a single color when you flip all the sequins in the same direction. If some of the sequins are flipped, you can contrast the required characters or patterns.
Sequino’s device “skeleton”
Sequino was used much like a 1980 “printer”, but because it was too slow, manufacturers had to speed up the demo video to three times.
Creator Ekaggrat Singh Kalsi clearly knows that Sequino is a far cry from “practicality” and is not planning to sell it, but rather a DIY process to share this interesting project.
