Hack of the Day: QClock

July 21, 2012 11:22 by docbliny 

I spent a moment this morning slapping together another application for the Nexus Q. This one is really simple, and all it does is to use the LEDs to show the time. There are three “hands” that show the hour in white, minutes in blue, and seconds in red.

The video doesn’t do full justice to the ability to read the time. The camera picked up too much light around each hand due to the diffusion the LEDs have. For example, the second hand looks fully red in real life, and doesn’t have the rainbow band around it as seen on the video.
