Counting days has never been this much fun! The DayCounter kit comes pre-programmed with software that allows it to count up one day at a time, or have it count down one day at a time from a set number. The kit easily mounts in a frame, or poster-board, so you can customize the surrounding text to suit your particular needs. A single DayCounter kit is good for up to 99 days, and they can be "chained together" serially to give you more digits.

Requires a 5v power supply (like an old cell phone charger, not included.)

  • Counts up
  • Counts down
  • Raises an output to 5v when it gets to 0 (countdown only)
  • Can chain lots of them together
  • 7-Segment display is mounted on the back, creating a flat surface which is easy to mount into projects.
  • One practical uses might be to count "days since the last workplace accident.

    Use it used as a physical form of the XKCD cartoon reset. Pre-installed software also drives a signal to ground on count-down expiration for application extensibility, one example might be a piezo-buzzer. For more advanced users, exclude the on-board MCU and you've got a 2-digit LCD with a simple to use serial interface that you can easily connect to an Arduino. Lots of configurations are possible, we can't wait to see how you will use it!
