    slipton got a reaction from RobG in MSP430 Nixie Clock   
    Hi All,
    I just finished assembling and modifying this kit for my SO for Christmas. I put it in a vintage toaster from 1910. Works great and so cool! However, watch out for shorting anything while the clock is powered - I fried some transistors while playing around with it.
    In any case, I made quite a few modifications and will post them here. I added the following components to the kit:
    Arduino UNO I had lying around.
    Random photodiode I had lying around.
    Adafruit RTC module: https://www.adafruit.com/product/3013
    Adafruit motion sensor: https://www.adafruit.com/product/189
    I modified the code to use the photodiode and motion sensor to control the brightness of the display using PWM. I have attached that. It is not written with extreme discipline, but it works
    Let me know what you guys think,
    Saul
    main_v6.ino
