Ice Tube clock build-a-thon

 Images Ice Tube Clock
Eggplant posted up in our forums about the Ice Tube clock kit and included a great photo!

Just completed. Worked first time, no issues, and I’m quite a novice at soldering. Fantastic kit! Everything fit together beautifully, and the instructions were clear. I especially appreciate the mid-build tests.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I need to order one of these – I don’t have a decent clock in my office, it’s both beautiful and hackable.

    Also, I want to reiterate – the mid-build tests are awesome, at least based on my experience with the Fuzebox kit. Hardware debugging is an art and it’s hard to learn without a mentor. Taking time to stop, test, and verify hardware subsystems are working helps ensure kits are successfully built, making for happy customers. It also teaches some debugging techniques (why is the kit assembled in this order? What do I look for to verify it’s working? What do I check if it isn’t?) Finally, the incremental approach to construction lets the builder see which parts of a circuit perform a particular function. What are the essential pieces of power supply – filters, regulators, etc? It’s hard to overestimate both the importance and quality of the kits’ instructions, both as construction guidance and as a learning tool for construction, testing, and design.

  2. thanks, Bob! thats what we’re aiming for!
