New DIY Watch project

Posted on by nek0 in english, projects, hardware

After long hours of browsing in the depths of the internet I stumbeled upon the “Chronode VFD” watch.

The first time I saw it I was completely baffled. I immediately wanted one of my own, but with some alterations. Problem is: I have absolutely no experience in hardware hacking. Luckily as a frequent visitor of my local hackerspace I know some people who have experience.

First I want to build a simplified version without that gorgeous vacuum fluorescence tube using LED-Modules as display and thus give it a longer battery life.

For now I am creating a bill of materials and looking for parts. you can check the progress at the github project I created and occasionally I will post the progress here.

flattr this!
