Sure modern LED and seven segments displays are more efficient (in cost and energy), easier to read, quicker to respond, more reliable but much like comparing a Mustang from the 60’s to a modern day one the older one just has a certain coolness.

I’ve seen a few online tutorials on making you own clock and I really think I need to make one, it would look amazingly cool on my projects desk.

Anybody get all nostalgic over a generally out dated tech that for some reason really still captures you attention?


*I really hope the gifs com thru, my phone is acting extremely weird. I keep getting upload errors even though the image shows up.

** I think the Kinja gods were kind and I see gifs finally after 4 days of trying.
