Make your own replica Nixie tube clock

Make your own replica Nixie tube clock

If you love the look of classic Nixie tube displays, but can't find the size you want - you make your own replicas using LED filaments and plastic containers. 

Andrei from the electronoobs website has done just that, by using the LED filaments to make large seven-segment displays for an Arduino-powered clock.

The segments are driven by a MAX7219-style LED display driver and we love how an old wooden box has been used a mounting platform. Check out the video below for a demonstration:

For much more information about this project, visit Andrei's website. To help you get started with your own clock, PMD Way offers the LED filaments, Arduino Nano-compatible board, Real Time Clock, MAX7219 and everything else you need.
