The work on my magnifier lamp is on slow at the moment as I've got involved with a design challenge that's got a deadline and requirement for weekly posts. The contest is "to enchant an every day object" so my plan is to take a weather house and hook it up to the internet to get a more accurate forecast. There's a few other changes along the way such as changing the motion to a more linear motion.
You can follow the work in progress at the link below.
Enchanted Objects ... | element14
The deadline for the project was Friday so I worked hard last week to ensure I had something to demo. The build is complete but it might be nice to record a better quality video. However, I'm taking a well deserved break this week.

I like it,
I have also this kind of project , but for a clock, I have the prototype, with arduino, steppers, temp and pressure catpors, but I'm still thinking about the casing, I want something contrasting with technology, it's still open ..
Great topic !
Hi Christophe, sounds like a cool project, you might like my other project

Exactly what I couldn't find for a while, I knew I had already seen your clock somewhere, I kept googeling to find it back, and couldn't remember it was from someone here !
Thanks for giving me the link again, it's exactly that, I love your old looking, but fool of techno, and but full of mischief ;-)
I have exactly the same stepper as yours, and so far, I feel they are quite slow, so I guess the hands are not dirctly on the shaft of the stepper, and how do you manage to drive the two hands that are on the same axis ?
Edit, I just saw the video, I saw how you did it, but where did you find the necessary gears ?
There is another one, which you probably already know about, it's a big wooden spiral, with a ball rolling always in the bottom position, this one could be nice to do as well.
