If you’re looking for a clock that’s equally vintage, modern, and pure geekery, look no further than the Chronotronix V400 Nixie Clock. Nixie tubes are electronic tubes that contain bent cathodes that glow, kind of like neon. They were used for displaying all kinds of information in electronic equipment but have long been replaced by the modern LCD display, but that didn’t stop the folks at NixieClock from creating this incredible desktop clock. Six nixie tubes are planted in a cherry wood frame and finished wita h black anodized aluminum surface, chosen specifically to reflect the glowing numbers. These are made in very limited quantities, so act quick if you want one.
Update: This looks to be no longer available from the original retailer, however, a quick search turns up some other options- nixie clock.
