Lego Mindstorms Make An ‘LCD’ Clock

Hans Andersson calls his Lego Mindstorm clock Time Twister. It uses two Lego Mindstorms NXT micro-computers setup to communicate via Bluetooth and display time in a very fantastic format. The master NXT keeps track of time and changes the minute digits, and when it is time to go okay, it sends a signal to the slave NXT that quietly and sheepishly changes the hour display.

Basically, our sleep can be divided into a number of stages, with stages 1 and 2 being close to awake stages, and stages 3 and 4 being the stages of a deep slumber, followed by REM.
