Don’t nix the Nixie Tube

The Nixie tube has some real fans out there and recently a revival of electronics, especially in kit form, featuring the tubes have shown up. I would love to get my hands on a clock or a watch, but have not mustered the courage to try to build one myself. You might think this retro nixie love is a new thing, but even in the early 1980s Popular Mechanics was speaking volumes about this impressive piece of technology and even explains how the technology works in a few short quick paragraphs.
