Hi all,

Today I pushed my Monochron project Emuchron v1.2 to github at https://github.com/tceulema/Emuchron.
Next to the usual slew of bugfixes, enhancements and refinements four new clocks are added (making a total of 17). Two of these are nifty QR clocks.

Both QR clocks encode, along the day, date and year, also the current time. However, whereas one QR clock encodes the time in format HH:MM, meaning that the QR is updated once a minute, the other encodes the time in format HH:MM:SS, meaning that a new QR is displayed every second. And there’s also a hardcoded Easter egg on April 1st.
Obtaining the date and time could not be made easier: simply use your favorite smartphone QReader app.

The QR clocks are embedded in the Emuchron clock plugin framework. The QR encode functionality is making use of Tz/HarleyHacking’s project qrduino at https://github.com/tz1/qrduino.

Please find below a picture of my Monochron/Emuchron QR clock, in this case the HH:MM:SS flavor.

Hello,

I built my Ice tube clock about a year ago. However, the IV-18 tube broke when the side of the acrylic housing got loose and somehow got pushed against the end of the tube. I was lucky to buy a replacement from Adafruit (while it lasted). I finally got back repairing it a couple of days ago. This is when I decide to make a sort of 'steampunk' version of the clock and incorporated it on an old oscillator board that has some unique vacuum tube in it. I placed a bright LED to make it glow. Now I am considering adding some more tubes on the base ... here is a preview...

Thanks Russell, I bought .032 dia solder.

My son built the Monochron Clock and decided the black case needed to be a transparent green one ($28 from Pololu). Now I get to order the internals to build another Monochron clock for his best friend. Good times!

I work for u-blox and integrated our GPS module (PAM-7Q) into the clock. As you see, I kept the u-blox logo/label very visible.

Well, I didn't take a picture, I took over 1100 - while putting it together. Here's the time lapse: https://youtu.be/pqpeun6zNH0

I made this oscilloscope/table quite a while ago and have been trying to think of a cool way to get some lights in it for ages. I know you can use the original CRT to make a clock, but this one's tube was too big, so I used the Ice-tube clock. I wired in momentary buttons and a switch I bought from Radio Shack, attached them to the face of the scope and screwed on the original dials (I couldn't' find a momentary dial/button). So Focus = Menu, Intensity = Set, Power = + buttons, and the switch at ASTIG is for the alarm.

I guess with the cover on, one can't really appreciate the ice-tube, maybe I can find another less-exciting clock to replace it with.

Just finished the Ice Tube Clock, had finished the Time Bomb one (I also added some wooden dynamite behind it for added effect) prior as a warm-up project. Had a temporarily issue with the Ice Tube but it's working very well now!

Hexadecimal Clock

I wanted to learn how Arduinos work and what better way than by building a clock. I've seen a bunch of binary clocks out there but have never seen one that displays the time in hexadecimal - so there was my project! A hexadecimal clock (with some binary thrown in, because I could :-).

The parts were pretty basic:

- Arduino Uno R3
- Adafruit Protoshield
- Adafruit 16x32 LED Matrix
- DS3231 Real Time Clock
- Adafruit panel buttons (with built-in LED)
- Plastic project box from Amazon
- Some misc components (resistors, caps, etc)

I had done some basic electronics way back in the stone age so it took some catching up to get to where I was comfortable with the design. Special thanks to Adafruit_support_mike for helping me sort through power supply issues.

Overall I'm happy with it. There are a couple of features I'd like to add. Also, the display is really bright. I think this is just the way these LED panels work. If anyone has an idea on how to adjust the brightness on these panels I'd be grateful.

Schematic & code are available on GitHub: https://github.com/HandyGuySoftware/HexClock.git
