How to get the current time from an NTP Server using an Arduino, ESP32, or ESP8266 [shorts #4]

Arduino-based clock projects are a staple in the maker and DIY community, and I’ve built a few ones myself. Such projects typically incorporate a real-time clock (RTC) module that keeps track of the time. However, once the battery on the RTC module runs flat, it forgets the previously set time. Another option involves adding a few push buttons to allow users to set the time. The Arduino itself keeps track of the time as long as it’s plugged into a power supply, and it forgets the settings once you disconnect it from the power source. This short article discusses a third option that allows you to make your clock projects much more user-friendly by automatically setting and adjusting the time when necessary.

So I tried it and here is the result. Enjoy!

GTA IV time-lapse and landscape shots

I recently worked on a video that I plan to publish in 2018 and I had some shots left-over which are nice, but probably won’t make it into the final video. I decided to publish them in their own video (I also included some nice clips, that I actually want to include in the final video). Watch it here:
