Introduction: Back to the Future Lamp & Clock
Originally, I started from the "high part", the "simple logo lamp". Then I thought: "Shouldn't I add a Back to the Future clock, in the style?" And that's it !
On the back, you'll see a small button, which changes the color, I put three different ones, but you can modify the code and add your favorite color.
Date and time are synchronized via Wi-Fi, don't forget to write your wifi credential in the code.
The components here : https://jeje-linge.fr/pages/bttf-lamp-and-clock
What you need:
- 2x red LEDs
- 3x displays
- 2x 220 Ohms resistors
- 1x 2.2K Ohms resistors
- 1m Led Strip RGB
- 1x Mini Esp32
- 1x Micro switch 6x6

Step 1: Print the Parts
Print every part.
I used black PLA but you can totally make it with grey PLA.
White PLA for the letters.
Layer 0.2mm, infill 15% for everything but the letters.
Letters: layer 0.2mm, infill 100%
Step 2: Painting
I used metal spray paint.
Insert the "caches" in the letters B, A, O and R.
Then place the white plate inside the model.
Step 4: Solder the Leds
Solder two 220 omhs resistors on the red leds.
Step 5: Glue the Led
Glue the two leds in the model.
Step 6: Chain the Displays
Connect the 5V, GND and CLK of all the displays.
Use 1 wire per DIO input.
Step 7: Place the Displays
Place the displays in the spaces provided.
Step 8: Glue the Led Strip
Cut the led strip in 3 parts.
Glue every part.
Step 9: Chain Led Strip Parts
Solder every part together.
Make sure you put the DIN of the first part on the left side.
Step 10: Solder the Switch
Solder the switch and the "pulldown" resistor.
Step 11: Solder AM/PM Led
Connect the red led to the ESP32.
The two minus pin must be connected to the GND of the last display.
Step 12: Connect the 5V
Connect the two 5v (led strip and displays) to the ESP32 VCC.
Step 13: Solder the Led Strip
Connect the GND and DIN to the ESP32.
Step 14: Solder the Displays
Connect every DIO, the GND and CLK to the ESP32.
Step 15: Place the ESP32 and Switch
Place the ESP32 and the switch in their places.
Step 16: Stick the Labels
I printed the labels on self-adhesive paper.
Step 17: Send the Code

Step 18: Wifi Setup
If you sent : BTTF_LAMP_CLOCK_WEBPORTAL_12H.ino or BTTF_LAMP_CLOCK_WEBPORTAL_24H.ino
Follow the procedure above
Step 19: Great Scott!
I finally invent something that works!
