Build with Akafugu again

Event Type: 

I don't know what it is about winter that makes me want to solder. Maybe it's the heat from the iron keeping my hands warm.
Tokyo HackerSpace will again be partnering with hardware kit maker Akafugu. Buy a kit from them, and assemble it with us!
This year we'll be featuring their series of VFD clocks.
These Vacuum Flourescent Displays are series of vacuum tubes that show letters or numbers in a bright green or blue.
Akafugu has found a number of uses for VFD displays, and is providing a workshop at THS for soldering and programming them. 
The VFD clock itself is modular, it comes with a base board, which is powered by an ATMega328p microcontroller and contains a high-voltage VFD driver that is used to light up the display shield that sits on the top board.
Five display shields are available. Pricing for the class will depend on which kit, ranging from 7.000 to 13.000, non-members add 1000 yen.
