About this project

Every PC, smartphone, microcontroller uses the "UNIX Time". UNIX time is also called "Epoch Time" or "POSIX Time". It is the seconds from 1 January 1970. Every computer uses UNIX Time but most of the people do not notice computers use UNIX time. I know it is not useful for humans but I think that it is funny if there is real world's UNIX time clock. So, I made it.
