Vacuum Fluorescent Display Alarm Clock [Project]
posted March 12 2014 5:16.40 by spic0m




Andrew Rossignol made this good looking alarm clock with a VFD display he got as a sample:

"I have been working on this fun little project for the last couple of days. I ordered this VFD display from Noritake as a free sample. I am quite grateful for their generosity and I decided to put this display to good use.
I have written a driver in C# that implements a partial selection of the commands available from this display. The driver is object-oriented with property accessors used to set configuration parameters of the display.

I put all of this together into a sample application for a smart alarm clock that I would like to build eventually. The sample application gets my unread e-mail from Gmail and weather data from Open Weather Map. I am also attacking the 16 custom characters that reside in ram to display a few simple animations."
