Ice Tube Clock mod! – Capacitive touch snooze mod

ahoude writes

Hello, This mod use a strip of copper tape to detect capacitance change through the acrylic for snooze activation. Here a short video as proof! 😀 More info and firmware available on my website.


Icetubeclock Lrg-1

This is our first clock kit design, made with a retro Russian display tube!

  • Cool glowing blue tube with 8 digits, PM dot and alarm on/off indicator
  • Adjustable brightness
  • Alarm with volume adjust
  • Precision watch crystal keeps time with under 20ppm (0.0002%) error (less than 2 seconds a day)
  • Clear acrylic enclosure protects clock from you and you from clock
  • Battery backup will let the clock keep the time for up to 2 weeks without power
  • Selectable 12h or 24h display
  • Displays day and date on button press
  • 10 minute snooze
  • Integrated boost converter so it can run off of standard DC wall adapters, works in any country regardless of mains power
  • Great for desk or night table use, the clock measures 4.9″ x 2.9″ x 1.3″ (12.5cm x 7.4cm x 3.3cm)
  • Completely open source hardware and software, ready to be hacked and modded!

Complete kit comes with a 110/220V 9VDC power supply (a $1 plug adapter from your local hardware store will allow it to be used worldwide), all components including PCB, vacuum fluorescent tube, backup battery and a clear acrylic enclosure. Assembly is required! This kit is made of through-hole components but is best built by someone with previous soldering experience as there are many parts and steps.
