A Series of Tubes

20150105-nixie-1060110My previous post covers how I scavenged a radio receiver module from a $7.50 clock to give me an automatic time-setting feature. But since the beauty of that is not obvious in plain sight, I need to build something to take advantage of it that does have some physical appeal.

The photo above shows the current work in progress. It’s a nixie tube based clock using the Smart Nixie that I supported on Kickstarter a while back. I had 6 of these lying around begging to be used in something, so I did a quick laser cut top to see how they fit and I’m quite happy with it. The tubes are hella simply to use, so most of the work is building the enclosure and assembling everything.┬áMaybe this weekend…
