Lots of fun incoming for Foxie RGB pixel mode clock!

A project log for Foxie Clock

Fully open-source RGB clock with nixie-like edge-lit acrylic digits. Or... an RGB pixel matrix display clock, if you like!

One of the coolest things about the Foxie Clock is the versatility to be both an edge-lit display and a RGB pixel display. I haven't been able to put as much time into this project as I've wanted until now -- I'm full time Foxie Products!

I've committed several improvements/fixes/features in the last 24 hours, and in addition to that, I've been working on making the "pixel mode" as good as the edge-lit mode... which needed some mechanical design work to get there.

I designed a new "stand" that wraps around the existing 3d-printed case, and then use a "dark smoke" special acrylic for the cover, and I think it looks pretty fantastic! It does require a right-angle USB-C cable, which I will be providing with Foxie Clock orders that include this "stand"

In addition, I also added an option that can "flip" the display, which works for both edge-lit and pixel display modes (see below picture)

This new stand and the acrylic lid will start shipping with all Foxie Clocks soon, with a minor price increase (don't worry, you can still remove the stand/pixel lid if you don't care for it).

P.S. I haven't forgotten about the wood cases or the app. It's been an absolutely ridiculous several months (outside of COVID-19), but I'm back on track now. More soon!

P.P.S. I suck at pictures, but I'm working on it. Consider the above picture a "test" photo.
