Filament clock

By Ben Everard. Posted

This month, Ben tried and failed to produce a Nixie-esque clock, using layers of LED filament to display ten numerical digits. He should simply have made a seven-segment display, as Jay Hamlin did with this beautiful creation. It uses an Adafruit HUZZAH32 Feather board to send data to four seven-segment displays, with each segment being comprised of a length of LED filament (the same material used in the Edison-style bulbs that are so trendy at the moment). The glass tubes just add to the aesthetic.
