Here is the Ice Tube Clock next to the Verbose Clock.
Building the Ice Tube clock I had two problems.
First, the regulator was faulty and I had to replace it with one I had. It passed the initial test but had no voltage at the beep test. I had to lift a pin of the output diode to figure this out.
Second, my tube came with twisted up wires, and I had to untangle them very slowly and carefully over a couple of sessions. I have no idea how the Russians did any mass production with those evil little wires. It now works fine.

The Verbose Clock is a custom build which I'd like to get a kit made up for. It has 24 characters of 14-segment LEDs and displays the time in words. It can also receive and display text over the serial port of the AVR.

I didn't see many analog meter clock photos so i thought I'd share a couple that I made.

Very cool steel/ipe clock case. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the pic of the clock in the Simpson VOM case until I saw it was inoperative. A nice way to use it.

College Project 60 NeoPixel Multi-Purpose Clock

Done for a college project, it's my multi-purpose clock! Using NeoPixels and the Adafruit NeoPixel library. The initial clock position code was found on the Learning system (I had no clue the useful function "map()" existed, awesome!).

The clock also displays animations, dances to music, can be dimmed, and is controlled via remote control. Built in animations such as fire, rainbow, or "guess the clock position" game, which randomly lights an LED after a glittering effect. You can see brief animations and concept videos of it on my YouTube Channel. :) https://www.youtube.com/user/SeiRruf/videos

"Steam Punk" style clock using a modified version of the "Trinket Meter Clock". Added the softservo library, and wired up a servo on pin 3 to move the pendulum. Added yellow LED's for a more aged look on the meters.
