Corona Clock

This was my first adventure into IoT/electronics.

The idea came when I found an API which served data relating to the COVID pandemic. I researched how to connect a seven segment display to a Raspberry Pi, using the GPIO pins. I also discovered I2C which is a brilliant way to connect electronic devices with only 2 wires: one for data and one to sync the clock.

I then made a little box for my electronics using some old insulation.

The device used the API to display the number of people who had recovered from coronavirus globally.
