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.
