With this great project from instructables member revrekad you can make a robot which will help you with the cleaning! Revrekad’s vacuum cleaner robot uses an Arduino and a few motors to drive the robot around whilst an old computer fan provides the suction! The great thing about this project is that it is mostly made from easily sourced materials such as cardboard and aluminium cans, so you have no excuse not to get started building your own right away! To find out more about this project check out the following link or the video below.
If you are getting bored of your current clock why not have a shot at making your own? Barzok has put together a great tutorial explaining how you can use a number of small LED matrix to build your own professional looking clock. Although the time display looks fabulous, it is the Arduino and real time clock module found inside which are responsible for ensuring the correct time is displayed. If you like the look of this project check out the following link to find out more.
If you are looking for a real-time clock module to complete this project (or any other project which requires precise timing) checkout the Freetronics Maxim DS3232 real-time clock IC module.
