I am planning to build a LED polar clock, so it will need about 181 LEDs (12 Month, 31 Day, 7 Day-of-week, 12 Hour, 60 Minute, 59 Second) and I need to control each one individually. I will be buying everything from scratch so I ask for help on:
- Which arduino to use
- How to make it keep time
- How to control the LEDs
The LEDs need to stay on once they're lit, e.g. at 5 o'clock, the 1-5 LEDs would be on. This is why I don't know that multiplexing or charlieplexing will work, as I read that it is better if the LEDs wont be remaining on/only a few are on. The most that could be on is 179 (Friday, December 31, 11:59:59 [Won't happen until 2021]).
Thanks in advance.
