Have a horrible, no-good, terrible commute every day? To make things a little easier on yourself, Arduino shield-maker 1Sheeld shows off how to hack a clock to change colour depending on traffic conditions. The idea here is to use a cheap clock from IKEA, wire in a bunch of LEDs, connect an Arduino and then use the 1Sheeld to trigger colour changes depending on the traffic time between two points. If you're sick of pulling up Google Maps every 10 minutes to check the traffic, this is an easy way to check it out at a glance. Since this comes from a company blog, it's obviously using their customised shield in the project, but there are probably workarounds if you don't feel like getting one for yourself. Regardless, it's a clever project that might help make your commute a little less terrible.
