How is the Text Clock made?

History

The first idea to make a clock that shows the time in text was in 1986. A graphical LCD screen had to display the time on 4 lines. The first line with "It's now two", second line "hours", third line "forty one" and last line "minutes" for the time 2:41.
It remained with a full design.

In 2011 I bought my first Arduino and 8x8 led display. First I built first a digital clock

LEDS 8x8

and later an analog clock.

LEDS 7x7

The logical follow up was to make a 7x7 clock with WS2812B based RGB LEDs.

The next step, in 2015, was to make a Text Clock with LEDs lighting up letters.
