To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.

Today’s kit giveaway is the Ice Tube Clock Kit (an $85 value!) Here is Marc de Vinck’s review from the issue:

The heart of the Ice Tube Clock is a distinctive, vintage, Russian vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) housed in a transparent, laser-cut enclosure. The clock features a precision watch crystal, alarm function, and battery backup. The build quality and online instructions are excellent, as is the completeness of the kit. Anyone who stops by my studio is always impressed with the VFD display, and the conversation usually steers towards reminiscing about old radios and VCRs from the 70s and 80s that used similar displays, albeit in not-so-similar laser-cut enclosures.
