Build an Akafugu Nixie Clock
"Nixie Tubes," states Wikipedia, "were used as numeric displays in early digital voltmeters, multimeters, frequency counters and many other types of technical equipment." This distinctive-looking output makes for an attractive timepiece.
THS is hosting a make-it-yourself workshop with the Nixie Clock kit from Akafugu. This soldering kit was created for the electronics beginner, featuring all through-hole components. Come and learn how you can build, customize, and display the piece.
If you have the urge to tinker with your clock, you can review the firmware, open-sourced on github and based on the Arduino. The workshop will cover connecting to a PC (using an FTDI adapter, available for a small fee) and programming the clock.
The clock kit details can be seen at http://www.akafugu.jp/posts/products/nixie/
This class price includes Y15,000 for the kit.
