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

That is very cool! You did a nice job!
Jerry
p.s. I would be interested in your code and schematics but I don't know how to PM someone on here.

I looked around and I guess there is no PM facility here.

Let me see if I can find somewhere to post them publicly.

OK, I broke down and created a GitHub account. The schematic and code can be found here: https://github.com/HandyGuySoftware/HexClock.git

Enjoy! :-)

I may have changed the case a little :)

I used Adafruit NeoPixel Rings and a NeoPixel strip to make a digital clock that syncs itself to NTP and handles daylight saving time all by itself. In other words a maintenance free clock. Information is available at:

The photos show the Adafruit GPS clock complete with the Arduino UNO board, the Ultimate GPS board, the Adafruit relay board and 7 segment display. The code will close the N/O relay for (2) seconds at the top of each hour. The project was made for the time synchronizing circuit of a 1800's Western Union wall clock with GPS accuracy.
I didn't want to cut a hole into the front panel for the display, so I opted to use a strip of Velcro to keep the display in place. I was able to get help from Rick at Adafruit to incorporate the relay code into the GPS clock.

The photo shows a sand clock drawing the time into sand and erases it with vibration motors:

It features Adafruit PWM/Servo Driver (https://www.adafruit.com/product/815) and 500 mA Power Boost LiPo charger (https://www.adafruit.com/product/1944)
Videos and build instructions and project is described on https://mcuoneclipse.com/2016/11/23/mak ... and-clock/

Enjoy!
