One day project. Grad School Tracker

Well If you didn’t know I’m in Grad School… It’s a multi-year endeavor and occasionally it can feel like I’m making no progress as the goals are so far in the future.

So I made this loading bar using an adafruit e-ink raspberry pi hat and a raspberry pi zero.

It’s a fairly simple little project which will update my percentage complete every five minutes making a nice little distraction as the hours while away.

It will also act as a convenient fuzzy clock with the time displayed at each of the display updates. I may revisit this project a few times to add additional features and different display modes depending on the date or how far into my degree I am.

 

… I spent today moving my brother and his wife into their new place otherwise I’d consider adding more details…
