NodeMCU / ESP8266 Powered YouTube Subscriber Counter – Build and Overview

I’ve been wanting to get a YouTube subscriber counter clock style device for a while now after I saw a few different YouTubers with them in the background of their videos.

I saw that there was a ready made one available on Amazon from a company called LaMetric – but it was close to $200!

So instead I decided to build one myself using various information I found online.

It cost me less than $20 to build this between the NodeMCU microcontroller, LED Matrix Array, and using my existing 3D printer to make the enclosure.
