Have you ever heard about Nixie Tube? This cold cathode display was introduced in 1955, and is an electronic device, displaying numerals or other information using a glow discharge. The glass tube contains a wire-mesh anode and multiple cathodes, shaped like numerals or other symbols. Applying power to one cathode surrounds it with an orange glow discharge. The tube is filled with a gas at low pressure, usually mostly neon and often a little mercury or argon, in a Penning mixture.
This Nixie tube clock is using the exact same nixie tube technology. But it is way more modern and improved! It features time display, calendar, cross-fade and numeral shuffle. It is powered by USB and is a modern take on a very retro Nixie Tube way. It features a wooden frame, that is available in four colors – white, black, maple or walnut. It will definitely appeal to the inner engineer in you – and will be a great interior piece. Nifty, but rather stylish wood and glass device will delight and inspire every scientific soul.
