    Hey!! That’s really cool that you posted Kurt’s project!! Here’s his website, chock full of goodies for the maker-types for those who are interested in things like source attribution!! https://retrotechjournal.com/2016/04/04/plexitube-owl-clock/

  2. I’m glad you liked it!

    Here’a link to the writeup of the build:

  3. I wanted to give a shout out to everyone at Adafruit. I used the Adafruit Neopixel library in the code for the clock. I use the Adafruit parts library in Eagle, heck I even read Adafruit tutorials about working with surface mount devices. You guys were a lot of help getting this project done in such short order. Thanks a bunch! Adafruit is such a great resource for the maker community.

  4. Thanks for the shout out Kurt! And also thanks for the link to the build shots and write up – hopefully that inspires more people to think through their projects. You inspire me, that’s for sure!
