Der Prototyp einer Stelle meiner geplanten Retro-Nixie-Uhr.
20x WS2812 Strip (144/m).
Angesteuert wird das Teil mit einem kleinem Demo mittels LED-Player von Diamex: http://www.led-genial.de/LED-Player-spielt-LED-Effekte-von-SD-Karte-ab
Derzeit plane ich vier Stellen um eine stylische Uhr zu bauen.
Es wird je Digit eine Platine mit 20 LEDs geben, die mit dem CRONIOS (https://www.led-genial.de/Basic-Cronios-1-max-256-LEDs-Uhr-LDR-Beeper-Drehimpusgeber) angesteuert werden. Die Software muss noch geschrieben werden.
Update 2017/November: BASIC Software ist fertig - Sample / Beispiele hier: https://www.led-genial.de/mediafiles//Sonstiges/LedBasic_15.1.9.exe

Hi there, the construction of the unit / layering of the pieces isn't clear. Do you have all the digits tightly sandwiched together (with a blank spacer?) or are there gaps between them. Many thanks...

Great work! Looks pretty nifty :).

I've always been interested in nixie(-like) displays and would love to realize some project with that kind of stuff. Do you own laser cutting/-graving equipment?
