Build a beautiful, modern digital clock with a retro flair using CircuitPython, Metro M4 Airlift, RGB Matrix shield, and a 64 x 32 LED RGB pixel matrix display.

WiFi connectivity with the Metro M4 Airlift keeps your clock in sync with internet time using Adafruit IO!

Features

The METRO Matrix Clock displays the time in the IBM Plex mono typeface, using a neon green hue for daytime hours, and red for nighttime hours.

You can also enable or disable the blinking seconds colon in code.

But that's it! Just a nice, minimal clock!
