Vacuum florescent character displays winners
Today we announce the winners of the 2×20 character vacuum florescent displays! There were lots of great ideas, thanks for your submissions.
Congratulations to Erik, his idea for bench power supply scored him two 2×20 character vacuum florescent displays:
Basically it uses an attiny85 as the brains and talks to the components over I2C. It has 6 voltage outputs – 5v,3.3v,1.8v,12v and 2 adjustables – each output can also have a current limiting.
Another winner is Zack, and his idea for a “punch card” style time tracker:
I use index cards to store to-do list items. I activate the timer by slotting in one of the cards, then hit the green “GO” button to begin. It chimes in every 15 minutes to see if I’m working or distracted – I hit the green or red button to tell it. After 90 minutes, it will tell me to move on to something else – your work suffers during that time.
And last but not least congratulations to Herp:
If this display supports serial mode, I would put it in my tiny sunrise alarm clock.
