MMM-Nixie – Nixie Tube Clock for your MagicMirror
Who doesn’t like Nixie tubes?
This module adds a Nixie tube clock to your MagicMirror. It cannot do much more than show the time, but it’s looking cool doing it. I’m considering a switch to hide all other modules during night time so at night only the soothing glow of the ticking Nixie tube clock fills the dark room.
It’s working like the real thing with 10 layers/digits in each “tube”. You can turn of the fake glass tubes, the wires and also the inactive digits.
If some of the digits seem brighter than others, that’s because the higher the digit, the further back it sits in the tube and so the inactive digits sit in front of it, blocking some of its brightness (not much). You can set
dimmto reduce this or turn it
offcompletely (but then it’s not a real Nixie tube anymore …).
- Configurable sizes and colors.
- Nightswitch (turn off everything else between time A and time B).
Have fun, let me know if you have any questions, ideas, comments. Thank you.
Ahh, I was wondering when you were going to release this. I really think this is an excellent idea for a module. It’s unique, slylish, and pretty damn cool. :-) I like it a lot!
P.S. I recently watched the movie “Capsule”. In it, there is a Nixie Tube Clock! Thought of this immediately!
