Meter Clock

The first script I wrote for the Velleman K8055 was to make a clock out of two moving-coil meters. I had used the meters for a similar project with a PIC MCU and ADC. I wanted to try that here. I also threw in the ability to monitor system resources on the two meters: CPU usage and Memory. The two scripts are available here: K8055 Clock & CPU/RAM script

Moving Coil Meter ClockHere, the clock shows 7:46
