Scope or CRT clock

Post30 Oct 2012, 17:41

Since I had the camera in hand photographing my Seiko EPD, I figured I'd take some of my Scope clock.

This clock was made by Howard Constantine, and it's really neat!! Hard to photgraph though because of the bad lighting conditions in my bedroom on a very cloudy day. :(

So here it is!!

Best photo I could get in the dark with this camera:

Using Lowlight mode to help show details of the clock:

The clock shows this analog face with running second hand every 10 seconds to help prevent tube burn in.

It runs on line voltage, so it's rather accurate. :)

lol, yea I do have a lot of conversation starters in the home, it all started when I decided to get clocks that were digital, but had to display time in a unique way.

Have you seen this guy's scope clock already? It uses circle generators to create the characters.

Very interesting and I am sure, a huge amount of programming work!!

There is also a very nice description on how things work.

There is no kit available yet, but I hope he will come out with one soon!
