As I mentioned a while back, I want to try building a "One LED Clock" and I've finally gotten the time. I found my Arduino, and hooked it back up. I started so far today making sure it all still works, so I built a simple "Knight Rider" style fader with LEDs. Take a look!
Simple LED Fader, with Arduino

Once I get to actually making the clock I have a few ideas, to make reading the time faster, by using more than one LED at a time. Perhaps a 4-LED binary display hours/ten minutes/minutes, perhaps a simple dual display that blinks hours and five-minutes together, but only testing will show if that's actually readable any faster.
