Omnixie Plus Smart Wifi Clock | Omnixie Plus 智能Wifi辉光钟

在去年三月发布了Omnixie以后,传统辉光钟的定义已被刷新,它不再是一个只是用辉光管来显示数字的普通单一的钟表,而是具有Wifi自动校时、手机智能控制、音乐铃声、四国语言报时等现代功能的智能时钟,且简单大方的纤薄底座,复古的北美黑胡桃边框搭配高光亮边的铝合金拉丝面板,得到了国内外朋友的一致认可。

After the release of Omnixie in March last year, the definition of the traditional Nixie clock has been refreshed. It’s no longer a simple clock that uses Nixie tubes to display number but has Wifi automatic adjusting, mobile phone control, music tones, four-language talking time and some other modern intelligent clock. It has a simple and generous slim base, the black walnut frame with high-bright edge aluminum brushed top plate, widely obtains the customer of the recognition and praise.

但由于尺寸的限制,18mm直径的辉光管并不能完全彰显辉光钟的可贵气质,所以自从Omnixie作品诞生以后,我一直在准备设计一款基于30mm直径的辉光管的Omnixie,最初的想法是除了管子变大以外,其余的尺寸均根据Omnixie的尺寸等比例放大,虽然很有挑战,但经过一年多的设计和开发,终于实现了这个想法,我给她取名为Omnixie Plus。

However, due to the size limitation, the 18mm diameter Nixie tube does not fully reflect the precious of the Nixie clock. Therefore, since the release of Omnixie, I have been preparing to design an Omnixie based on 30mm diameter Nixie tubes. The original idea is remaining dimensions are scaled according to the size of Omnixie. Although it’s very challenging, after more than a year of design and development, I finally realized this idea, I named  it Omnixie Plus.

Omnixie Plus在今年5月17日的美国加州湾区的Maker Faire 2019上已经正式发布,在详细介绍之前,我们还是按照惯例先睹为快:

Omnixie Smart Wifi Clock | Omnixie 智能Wifi辉光钟

转眼间,距上一个辉光钟作品诞生已时隔近六年,原以为我已经对古朴而又柔美的辉光管进行了完美的诠释,未曾想时隔近六年后,又一次改变了辉光钟的概念,一款完美的智能Wifi辉光钟作品Omnixie诞生

How time flies, six years have past since my last Nixie clock released, I thought I had performed a perfect interpretation of Nixie Tubes, never thought that I redefined it again after six years, a perfect smart Wifi Nixie Clock released today.

现在看来,之前所做过的辉光管时钟作品包括大多数DIYer的辉光钟作品,都仅仅是将电子时钟里的显示器件这个元素替换成了辉光管,而后或多或少的对外观加以修饰,使其Hold的住辉光管古典的气场,除此之外,所谓的跨越时空的古老器件与现代科技的完美结合并不凸显。所以在3年前萌生新的想法时,许久未能赋予她新的定义。Omnixie从2015年初开始动手做第一版设计,这3年时间里经历了5次改版,每一次改版都源于对极致的苛求,对以前所有创作过程中所遇到的问题进行革新,对时下流行的科技进行整合应用,而又始终不离开时钟这个本质!在详细介绍之前,我们先睹为快:

For now though, all Nixie clocks that have been done before include most of DIYer’s Nixie clocks are merely replaced the element of display components with Nixie tubes, and the appearance was modified to make it more classical. In addition, the perfect combination of the so-called time-spaced ancient devices and modern technology is not highlighted. So when a new idea was created three years ago, it’s hard to give it a new definition. The Omnixie project was launched for the first edition from the beginning of 2015, it has undergone five revisions in the past three years. Each revision has its origins in the rigorous demand and innovates all the problems encountered in the previous creative process, integrated and applied the popular science and modern technology, but never leave the essence of the clock. Before we go into details, let’s look at it first:
