Hey guys and gals,

I want to show my Ice Tube Clock. It is a vacuum fluorescent display clock. The tube is made in Russia and it give a nice glow in the dark.
I bought it as a kit and the soldering was fun. Everything was documented so that wasn't hard to build. :)
Here are some pictures :

Is that the adafruit one? It looks awesome & I actually wanted to try it a few years back ( before I started this lazor stuff :D ) but they were always out of stock :(

Anyways it's awesome Blord :D

Edit: found it again :D http://adafruit.com/products/194
Wow price went up like 20$... They were serious about the price going up :p

I didn't have time to set the time :D
I was tired after building the clock in 3 hours and the thing has about 10 menu's to set everything. Even GPS is possible with an eternal module. :)
It was a quick and dirty photo shoot.

Nice clock. I like that there's a GPS Timekeeping mod avaiable so it keeps time right by itself.

Not bad for $85. I was thinking it would be 150+ when I was looking for the price.

It would be awesome to build it into a LPM readout. Two readout would be possible on the tube. One max output and one current output.
