Nixie tube hacked by Hackaday gurus
Aesthetics of digital clock displays was always under question. For this reason the nixies now and then stirred the inventive mind. Trying to give his Christmas futuristic vintage look the Hackaday guru [Kurt] designed a nixie clock in the shape of an owl substituting the glass of the tube for the plexi, said the Hackaday site https://hackaday.com/tag/nixie-tube-alternative. Some may notice that futuristic vintage technology resembles much of the “Star wars” style. Earlier, the Hackaday created a nixie tube kit of thirteen tubes controlled via userinterface.
