What’s in a bin? is a new series highlighting one of the multitudinous bins of stuff that Ladyada uses to design, research, and refine Adafruit products. For this installment’s bin, we’re taking a journey into Adafruit’s past with…
The Ice Tube Bin
What was the ice tube?
The Ice Tube Clock Kit was a much beloved, Adafruit original that was discontinued due to a shortage of Soviet-made VFD tubes.
What’s in the bin?
PCBs! Five iterations of Ice Tube PCBs – Including the original PCB that was etched in house!
Old Soviet Datasheets
Is there a future for the Ice Tube?
Maybe! We’ve been trying out different versions of the ice tube clock kit with different VFD tubes – but haven’t settled on a version we’re happy with. Keep checking adafruit.com/new and maybe, some day, we’ll have a brand new Ice Tube Clock Kit.
