Tide Clock

Your personal sea at home. The idea is to have a nice or even poetic visual representation of the actual tide of the sea. As there are many seas and shores in the world, I choose the sea in my hometown: Noordwijk.

It shows at the minumum the current tide. If time permits I can add a sunset and sunrise (maybe with light). Both parameters are (in their basis) calculatable: tides for exmample are dependent on the position of both moon and sun. I know that there are tables of sunset/sunrise, as there are tables of the tides. That means that it could be possible to make a basic offline version by storing these tables somehow on the PCB that I will hopefully learn to create.

Even better would be a version that has access to online data, for example the actual tide. And the weather, so the device could also give an idea about waves and wind.
